All About Massage

Massage has a long history of use throughout the world as a form of healing therapy. Today, we use many different types of massage therapy for a variety of health-related purposes. Here at TRU Salon + Spa, we offer a full range of massage options to suit your needs. If you’re new to this type of treatment, we understand the many options can be confusing. Here, we will highlight the differences to help you choose the best one for you.

Swedish. This is the most common type of massage. The main goal of this massage is to relax the body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of the blood flow towards the heart. Beyond relaxation, though, this type of massage is also beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, and improving circulation and flexibility.

Hot Stone. Hot stone massage is a specialty treatment using smooth, heated stones as an extension of your therapist’s hands or used in specific places on the body. The heat is deeply relaxing and can warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply. This type of massage relieves muscle tension and pain, reduces stress and anxiety, and promotes relaxation and sleep.

Prenatal. A customized massage for the mother-to-be in her second or third trimester, prenatal massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and swelling.

Reflexology. Reflexology is a therapy based on the principle that there are small and specific areas in the hands and feet that correspond to specific muscle groups or organs of the body. Through the application of pressure on these particular areas of the hands or feet, reflexology can promote benefits such as relaxation of tension, improvement of circulation, and support of normalized function in the targeted corresponding area. This technique is also an excellent choice for stress relief and relaxation. Choose from 45 minute hand sessions, 45 minute foot sessions, or 60 minute trio sessions that include hands, feet, and earlobes.
