What is the difference between Relaxation / Swedish massage and Deep Tissue / Therapeutic Massage?

Directions to Clinic

A Relaxation massage also known as Swedish massage is similar to spa-type massage. It comes with kneading techniques, and light to medium pressure during the session. Most often patients will go for one relaxation massage ones a month to maintain a healthy state of their body.

Deep tissue or Therapeutic massages use more advanced techniques to help ease pain and address chronic health care issues. Patients who go for therapeutic massage typically have health-related symptoms that impact their daily lives. No symptoms can be 100% treated with only one therapeutic massage session. Patients are often asked to make a few frequent weekly massage wellness sessions and over time those treatments can be reduced as the patients are getting better.
