Swedish | 60 or 90 minutes : Uses long connective strokes to warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually breaking up “knots” in the muscle. Swedish massage can range from gentle to vigorous, depending on the client’s desired outcome and tolerance.

Deep Tissue | 60 or 90 minutes : Utilizes traditional massage strokes to relieve tension in muscles, tendons and ligaments, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper. Therapists may use fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows and forearms to achieve the desired results, which may help with back pain, mobility, inflammation and recovery from injuries.
