Different Types Of Massage Therapy In Los Angeles
The aesthetic treatment of Massage Therapy

given usually depends on your physical condition
and the needs. Massage therapy is the
manipulation and working on soft tissues of the
body including, muscles, connective tissues,
tendons, ligaments and joints to relive pain and
stress. Massage Therapy is a clinically-oriented
and well recognized healthcare service that helps
alleviate the discomfort associated with everyday
and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and

therapy as a part of complementary and
alternative medicine (CAM), although it does have
some conventional uses.
Swedish Massage Therapy-Swedish massage therapy
is the most common and sought after massage body
therapy. As the best-known type of bodywork
performed today, one of the primary goals of the
Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire
body. This therapy works by rubbing the muscles
with long gliding strokes in the direction of
blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage
therapy is much more than body relaxation.
Swedish massage is best known for providing

the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving
circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

therapy is similar to Swedish massage. This
therapy includes deeper pressure which is
beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension.
The main target of the therapy is the deepest
layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the
protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and
joints). A study in the Journal of Alternative
and Complementary Medicine found that people's
blood pressure fell after a single 45 to 60
minute deep tissue massage. Massage modalities

massage therapy are gaining popularity as useful
components in a balanced training regimen. Sports
massage therapy is efficient in enhancing

specially designed sport massage promotes
flexibility and reduces fatigue. Sports massage
therapy also increases endurance of the body and
