The Swedish massage, which was created by Henry Peter Ling in Sweden at the turn of the century, uses kneading, stroking, friction, tapping, and vibration to relieve stiffness, numbness, pain, constipation, and other health problems.

Deep tissue massages focus on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is primarily used in areas where there is chronic tension or where muscles are extremely contracted. Examples are stiff necks, sore shoulders, and lower back tightness. Even though some of the hand strokes of deep tissue massage are the same used in classic massage therapy, the hand movements are slower and the pressure is deeper and more concentrated on problem areas.

Hot stone massages, specialty massages that involve the use of smooth, heated stones, improve circulation, increase metabolism, and help with muscle tension. The warmth from the stones opens blood vessels, which in turn, increases blood flow. While the massage therapist works on deep muscles of the body, stones are placed on specific areas for circulation benefits.

Sports massages were developed to help athletes perform well for major events, recover after injuries, or perform well during training. Its emphasis is on prevention and healing of muscle and tendon injuries. Reflexology uses a combination of Swedish massage and sports massage to care for feet, ankles, and legs. Pre-natal or pregnancy massages are used during pregnancy. Expecting mothers get to experience the physical benefits of the massage, and the human touch provides emotional support during pregnancy. Trigger point massages apply and release pressure in one area of the body to reduce pain in another.
