Swedish Massage uses a system of long strokes, kneading, and friction percussive and vibration techniques on the more superficial layers of muscles, combined with active and passive movements of the joints. It is used primarily for full-body sessions and promotes general relaxation, improves blood circulation and range of motion, and relieves muscle tension.
Deep Tissue releases the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the grain of muscles, tendons and fascia. It is called deep tissue because it also focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
During pregnancy and childbearing, there is an enormous influx of hormones and a shifting center of gravity. The weight gain, altered body shape, and resulting discomfort, all contribute to pregnant women feeling uncomfortable, emotionally and physically! Massage can provide an excellent means for relieving body stress. When a woman feels integrated and healthy in her body and mind, she will experience a more positive birth experience.
