PDX Bodysong Deep Tissue & Swedish Massage
Deep Tissue massage is a style/modality that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness and sore shoulders.
Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
Swedish massage is massage that is performed over your skin using oil or cream/lotion. The aim is overall relaxation, increase in the circulation to muscle tissue and skin, and to release any soreness, tightness or muscle tissue adhesions. The pace is slow and relaxing overall.
