There are more than 80 types of treatments in the field of massage therapy, each of which requires specific skills and techniques. Some of the most popular massage techniques today are classical therapeutic massage (Swedish), deep tissue, neuromuscular, sports, myofascial, lymphatic drainage, and many other types of massage and their combinations.
Classic healing massage
One of the most popular therapeutic massages, which uses light to medium pressure and long, smooth strokes all over the body to relieve stress and muscle tension. This method is preferred for those who cannot get a regular massage.
Classic massage relieves muscle tension and pain. The massage usually lasts up to half an hour, the masseuse works on the patient’s back, legs, arms, shoulders and neck.
During deep massage, more pressure is applied to eliminate chronic muscle tension and muscle spasms. Massage therapists use slower techniques than those used in classical therapeutic massage, as well as more methodical techniques that target specific areas.

The purpose of medical massage is to address any dysfunctional areas or problems in the soft tissues of the body. It differs from therapeutic massage in that it is not aimed at removing tension or stress from the body. This type of massage is used to treat patients recovering from injuries or surgical procedures.
After an injury or surgery, the patient usually avoids using the muscles that are injured or surrounding the injured segment until the injury has healed. At this time, inactive muscles lose elasticity and function. Massage is used to rehabilitate inactive muscles. It stimulates proper movement, improves blood circulation and prevents further injuries.
Medical massage is specially designed for those who need muscle recovery after injuries or surgeries. Massage should be performed on the recommendation of a doctor.
