Deep Tissue Massages are, like the name suggests, get deep inside the muscle bellies – providing enormous amounts of relief. The fascia is lengthened through the use of the masseurs hands, thumbs, elbows, and knees – depending on personal preference.
Another popular massage treatment is the Shiatsu Massage. Originating from Japan, it uses acupressure techniques to open up the chi energy pathways in the body. It also strengthens muscles, ligaments and tendons.
One massage which is commonly talked about is the Thai Massage. Without the use of any oils, the lack of lubrication means that muscles are penetrated deep in this treatment – similarly to a deep tissue massage. On top of that, the masseur also applies stretching techniques – placing the body in different positions. It’s minimalistic in many ways, and the fact that it’s performed on the floor exemplifies that.
With all these types of treatments, it can be difficult to ascertain which one will be most beneficial.
