There are a wide variety of massage techniques, and massage therapy’s benefits are just as varied, from relaxation and stress relief to injury recovery and managing chronic pain. Massage therapy reduces muscle tension, stress and fatigue, and improves circulation.

The main styles of massage therapy are Therapeutic/Deep Tissue Massage and Relaxation/Swedish Massage.

Therapeutic/Deep Tissue Massage

This is a restorative, pain-relieving massage that’s often appropriate to help muscles heal after an accident or car collision. Although all massage treatments are therapeutic by nature, this massage goes beyond its Swedish base, bringing additional techniques, deeper pressure and specific focus to areas of the body that need extra attention. Deep tissue work is used, as well as stretching, passive range of motion, trigger point therapy, myofascial release and more.

Relaxation/Swedish Massage

This massage for relaxation brings a healthy balance to the body – it decreases stress and muscle tension, increases circulation and helps restore the mind-body connection. It’s what we think of as a traditional massage, incorporating soothing strokes that glide and knead. Pressure ranges from light to medium and oils or lotions are often used. Along with increased relaxation and circulation, this style of massage can be extremely effective in releasing areas of muscle tension and soreness.

Apex also offers a variety of other massage techniques, including craniosacral therapy, maternity massage and structural integration.

Pregnancy Massage

A pregnancy massage is much like a regular massage, but the therapist will be careful to avoid putting pressure on certain areas and will use unique positions to keep the mother comfortable and safe. For example, rather than spending the entire session lying face-down, you will be on your side or in a semi-reclined position. This avoids putting pressure on your abdomen and disrupting blood flow.

During a prenatal massage, the therapist will avoid using deep pressure on your abdomen and legs. Gentle pressure may be used, but deep pressure on your legs can cause problems if you have blood clots.
