Can’t figure out which type would be best for you when getting a massage in Miami? If it’s your first time getting a relaxation massage, it might be wise, to begin with, a Swedish massage, one most picked by those who are new to getting massages regularly. Maybe you’ve had a Swedish massage or two before and now you want to try something new and more exotic. Below you can learn more about each type of massage we offer at our massage clinic, in hopes of giving you all that you need to know to make a well-informed decision before booking your appointment with us for a massage in Miami.
The first and one of the most popular types of massages that clients typically get is a Swedish massage. This particular massage is the best choice for those who may be new to receiving massages, have quite a bit of built-up tension, and may be sensitive to being touched in such a manner. This particular style of massage is what you’ll want to try out if you’re aim is to experience full relaxation during your massage.
Your typical Swedish massage will begin by you removing your clothes while keeping your underwear on is an option of course. Your therapist will instruct you to lay on a massage table where you will be covered in a sheet. When the massage therapist begins, they will remove the sheet only on the areas that they will be working with at that moment, keeping the rest of you covered. You will find that your therapist will use a relaxing combination of kneading, long even strokes moving in the direction of your heart, deep circular motions, tapping, and even some passive joint movement techniques. A Swedish massage will typically last around an hour to an hour and a half.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massages are another massage option to help you wind down and find relief from muscle tension. Hot stone massages do more than just relax your muscles and ease the pain. During this type of massage, the massage therapist uses hot stones (as the name implies), instead of or in addition to using their hands to give the massage. The heat from the stone helps to relieve muscle tension, promote blood flow, and ease pains. Just like with the Swedish massage, you will be asked to remove your clothes, but may keep your underwear on if you feel more comfortable that way. A hot stone massage usually will last about an hour and a half.
Deep Tissue Massage
You may have also heard of a deep tissue massage, another common and extremely effective form of massage therapy. Deep tissue massages use a higher pressure than Swedish massages. This kind of massage is an excellent choice if you suffer from any sort of chronic muscle pain issues. Deep tissue massages are also great if you find that your muscles are extremely tight or even if you have anxiety. During a deep tissue massage, your massage therapist will again ask you to take off your clothes off, while it’s still okay if you’d like to keep your underwear on. This massage is done with slow, deep strokes with a high amount of finger pressure used in the process. This technique allows for tension relief from the deepest layers of muscles and tissues. You can expect this massage to last about an hour to an hour and a half. Although this massage is more intense than most, you should not experience any pain or soreness afterward. It’s really important to make sure that you find someone very well educated, like our staff, to get a deep tissue massage in Miami.
A Thai massage, on the other hand, is a more physically engaging form of massage therapy. Thai massages are for those who would rather be actively involved in the therapy, instead of just laying on a table. Pain can still be relieved and stress managed. Thai massages can also help to improve flexibility, energy levels, and even circulation throughout the body. You will be guided through a sequence of movements that you may find similar to those you practice in yoga. During these poses, the massage therapist will use their hands to apply pressure to certain points in your body. They will also be stretched and contorted into various positions. Unlike the previously mentioned massages, you will be asked to wear loose, comfortable clothes for this therapy. An hour to an hour and a half is the average time for this massage therapy session.
If your goal is to relieve pain and muscle tension, any of the previously mentioned massages can achieve that goal. But consider the emotional benefits that come with a Shiatsu massage therapy session. Shiatsu is a Japanese style massage that will help you feel relaxed and provide relief from pain, stress, and muscle tension. If you find that you’re emotionally overwhelmed, and that is causing you some physical tension a Shiatsu massage might be exactly what you need. This form of massage therapy is known to promote emotional and physical relaxation as well as relieve stressful feelings of anxiety and depression. Shiatsu massage therapy incorporates the entire body, although your therapist may put their focus onto specific areas of the body. The therapist will use all parts of their hands during the massage, to work on different areas of the body using rhythmic pressure motions. You may stay fully clothed during this massage therapy.
