Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking. Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis.
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper Deep Tissue Massagelayers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic swedish massage, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment.

Trigger point massage is typically incorporated into deep tissue massage.
Smooth, flat stones of various sizes are heated to a suitable temperature and used to glide across the body. The heat from the stones relaxes tense and tight muscles while also warming the body. Swedish massage techniques are typically incorporated into a stone massage allowing for deeper healing and relaxation.
