1. Swedish massage
It’s a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energise you.
2. Deep massage
This technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.
3. Sports massage
Similar to Swedish massage, it’s geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.
4. Trigger-point massage
This type focuses on areas of tight fibres that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.
