Different Types of Massage
There are many modalities under the term massage that may be beneficial. Below are the types of massage offered at Mysa Massage:
Swedish Relaxation Massage
When most people think of getting a massage, they are picturing a Swedish massage, which is a very gentle form of massage that uses long strokes and deeper circular motions. After receiving a Swedish massage, most people feel calm and relaxed, yet energized.
Table Yomassage combines restorative stretch, mindfulness meditation, and therapeutic touch. Through Yomassage, you will enter a deeper state of tranquility and relaxation.
You Deserve to be Pain-Free and Healthy!
Many people feel that taking the time and/or spending the money to get a massage is too “indulgent.” But massages have little to do with “pampering” yourself and more to do with ensuring you are as healthy as possible. Sure, they feel awesome, but as you saw, massages also offer some profound health benefits.
