DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia. Similar movements and techniques as Swedish massage may be used with a more intense pressure.
Lymphatic Massage, or Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle massage technique used to encourage the natural drainage of lymph and to increase blood flow in the deep and superficial veins.
