The kinds of massages you can get are pretty much endless, and vary from those that require very little outside of the long, flowing strokes standard to Swedish massage, to types that might incorporate hot stones or aromatherapy oils. Check out our list of most common kinds of massage for a quick explanation of each:

 

 

  • Swedish: long kneads are used to ease tension in muscles and help clients relax
  • Deep-tissue: intense kneading techniques are applied to address issues with deep layers of muscle tissue
  • Hot-stone: small heated stones are placed on the client's back to loosen muscles and prime them for kneading
  • Reflexology: a foot massage that manipulates pressure points to address correlating achy or pain-ridden parts of the body
  • Thai: a fully clothed treatment wherein the practitioner puts the client through a series of intense, full-body stretches

All About Swedish Massages

 

Swedish massage is rooted in Western practices of anatomy and physiology. To perform this type of massage, licensed therapists apply an arsenal of pressure styles that include stroking, kneading, striking, rubbing, and vibrations. Using massage oil to help their strokes glide, they focus the pressure along the muscles that run the length of the body. Here are some of the best spas in NYC to get a Swedish massage:
