A massage can treat and prevent muscular aches, workout injuries and stress-related conditions. Once considered a luxury, massages are now considered a part of healthy living. Mantra Wellness offers a variety of massage techniques – Here are short summaries of some of the services we offer.
- Swedish massage: Swedish massage uses firm pressure to increase circulation with long strokes, kneading motions or friction. It is usually done with oil to make movement of the hands smoother. It is generally the most gentle and promotes relaxation and the release of tension.
- Hot stone massage: The massage therapist uses heated volcanic stones, and places them on various spots on the back. The heat will help loosen the muscles while the massage therapist massages with the stones to release pressure and promote relaxation.
- Deep tissue massage: Deep tissue massages are done with kneading and long strokes, but the pressure is more intense. This type of massage is aimed at the deeper muscle layers to help with more extreme or chronic muscle pain.
- Traditional massage: Traditional massages combine stroking and kneading techniques that are applied to the muscles and connective tissues to reduce pain and tension and increase the circulation.
