Whether you’re new to massage or haven’t had anything other than a deep-tissue session in awhile, the myriad types of massage can be mind boggling. Here are four of the most popular, which you might want to request at your next massage appointment.

Swedish Massage

  • Benefits: easing of superficial tension; boosting circulation
  • Try it: if you’ve never had a massage before or just need light to moderate tension relief

Deep-Tissue Massage

  • How it’s done: intense kneading and strong strokes
  • Benefits: the release of chronic tension and improvement of range of motion
  • Try it: if your muscle pain and tension is deep or chronic

Shiatsu Massage

  • How it’s done: strong kneading, with the therapist often using elbows, knees, and even feet
  • Benefits: stress release via improved circulation and oxytocin production
  • Try it: if you’re curious about Eastern massage styles and in serious need of de-stressing

Trigger-Point Massage

  • How it’s done: deep-tissue-style strokes and kneading targeted to specific points of tension
  • Benefits: relief from issues such as sciatica, stiff joints, and plantar fasciitis
  • Try it: if you have any of the above ailments and you can handle pain that’s so bad it’s good

Best Prenatal Massage

Women's Integrative Massage at Harmony’s Family Cooperative | Cherry Creek

Dedicated to meeting the unique needs of women’s bodies, the therapists at Women’s Integrative massage understand the different needs of female physiology. Clinical massage can be calibrated to each woman to restore health and relaxation, while a dynamic bodywork session includes massage as well as assisted-stretch techniques to help with flexibility and range of motion.


And it’s the prenatal massage where these therapists can really shine, as the management of pain during pregnancy has been their focus for over two decades. However the mother is most comfortable—face down, seated, or sideways—the therapist can help relieve that tension so unique to pregnancy, in a way that will give the expectant mother some much needed peace.

What Is a Prenatal Massage?

While studies show that a massage session can significantly reduce pain and discomfort during pregnancy, a prenatal massage is different from traditional massage in a few important ways.


The Process

During a prenatal massage, the client should lie on her side, with her body weight supported by specially designed pillows. Some therapists, however, utilize pregnancy massage tables, which have a cutout for the abdomen, enabling the client to lie on her stomach.


The massage therapist will likely focus on the lower back, as that’s a source of discomfort for many pregnant women, and on the head, neck, and shoulders to help relieve headaches.


Other Considerations

First of all, an expectant mother should be cleared by her doctor before getting a massage. During the session, the therapist will likely steer clear of the belly and only lightly massage the legs, to avoid releasing blood clots.
