What’s the Right Massage for you?

In Blog by Achieve Wellness Spa

We all reach a point where our bodies are feeling a little beaten up and sore. We know a massage will help, but not all massages are created for the same purpose or outcome. Understanding the different messages and their elements will help you choose exactly what you need.

Here are the different massages at Achieve and you can finally choose which is best for you.

Swedish Relaxation Massage

This tremendously relaxing massage is designed to energize the body by stimulating circulation, which speeds healing and reduces inflammation. A Swedish Relaxation Massage is focused on relaxation, which is one of its biggest healing benefits. Aromatherapy is incorporated for a holistic healing approach. Pure essential plant oils are custom blended to meet your individual needs. These natural oils are gently massaged and absorbed into the bloodstream, clearing physical and emotional toxins, pain, stress, and negativity. When combined with the massage, the essential oils create a relaxing, luxurious experience that balances the mind, body, and spirit.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue is an intense form of massage that aims to address the cause of pain and functional movement issues. Through slow strokes and deep pressure, the massage therapist uses a combination of soft tissue techniques like trigger point therapy, myofascial release, active stretching to relieve pain or soreness. These techniques improve joint movement and assist the body’s natural healing process to activate. Deep Tissue Massage is generally a full body massage. In addition to the massage, our therapists will recommend an exercise prescription that will support your goals.

Therapeutic Sports Massage

A Therapeutic Sports Massage may be of particular benefit for those suffering from, headaches, back or neck pain, frozen shoulder, sciatic pain, sports injury and general stiffness. This massage is body part specific so that the therapist can focus on the area of dysfunction in order to promote a healing response. By localizing the massage, it causes a lasting effect in that specific area.

Now that you know which massage you need to support your goals and addressing your concerns with your therapist will create longer-lasting benefits and a better experience every time you come into the spa. Call us today at 780-750-3391 or book your massage within seconds online.
