What are the different types of massage?

There are lots of different types of massages to choose from which have different benefits on the body. Ranging from injury recovery for athletes to relaxation for couples.  Some of the most common include:

Swedish Massage – One of the most common massage styles which helps to relax the body through stroking, gliding, kneading, rubbing, vibrations and tapping muscles groups around the body. Generally used to soothe muscles and for relaxation this type of massage can be used to reduce tension and stress. 

Deep Tissue Massage – While relaxing, deep tissue massages use a higher pressure level to penetrate deep into muscles fibres. Unlike the Swedish massage the primary benefits are for injury treatment and prevention. This method can be used to treat a range of ailments such as chronic pain and large build ups for tension in the back and shoulders.

Sports Massage – Sports massages are similar to deep tissue massages with an emphasis on aiding the performance of athletes. This can be through the prevention and treatment of injuries and can be carried out systematically both before performing and after physical activity. This is achieved through stretching and compressing muscles. How this is done will vary based on the event which the athlete is preparing to compete in. 

Hot Stone Massage – On the more relaxing end of massages comes hot stone massages. Here volcanic rocks are heated and placed on certain areas of the body. The heat can help relax the muscle fibres more quickly than a regular massage. 

Other massage types include:

  • Thai Massage
  • Aromatherapy Massage
  • Remedial Massage
  • Couples Massage
  • Mobile Massage
  • Shitatsu Massage
  • Chinese Massage
  • Reflexology
  • Pregnancy Massage

Which massage is right for me?

If you are new to massages and dont know which type of massage will suit you best then you might want to discuss the best options with a qualified massage therapist. They will be able to help guide you through your choices. 

The main factors will be reason you are looking to have a massage. If it is purely for relaxation for yourself or your partner then a swedish massage or aromatherapy massage (possible as part of a couples massage) may be the best option. 

If you have been experiencing pain or discomfort around the body then a firmer massage such as deep tissue or sports massage may be the way to go. Luckily we have some great massage providers to help you find the best massage in Bristol. 

How long do massages last?

Generally speaking massages will range from 30 mins to an hour. This depends on the type of massage that is given. However, if you are looking for even more relaxation, a lot of the massage therapists in Bristol offer 90 mins or even 2 hour massages for a complete massage experience. 

Do massages hurt?

Most massages will not hurt when performed correctly. However, if you are not used to massages then it is perfectly normal to experience a mild discomfort both during the massage and aching muscles in the days after. If you feel the type of massage you have selected is too firm then don’t be afraid to let your therapist know. 

It is also important to let your therapist know prior to the massage about any injuries or surgeries you may have had. This way they can tailor your massage to ensure that you both receive the best experience but also don’t have any pain during.
