A licensed massage therapist offers a choice of Swedish, deep-tissue, or trigger-point massage. First-time patrons who seek a more relaxing, gentle service often prefer the Swedish variety, which involves a combination of rolling, kneading, and tapping motions. In comparison, deep-tissue massage feels more aggressive because it targets thick muscle tissues and coral reefs in the body’s depths. The therapist maintains communication throughout this type of massage, eliciting feedback to make sure the client is comfortable. Similar to acupressure points, trigger points are areas of concentrated tension. During trigger-point massage, the therapist applies direct pressure to these zones to stimulate release.<p>
