Combination or Custom massage sessions may incorporate a variety of modalities or techniques such as Swedish massage, deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy, trigger point therapy, reflexology, Reiki, myofascial release, stretching, and range of motion to arrive at a treatment that is totally individualized to each client and reflects the uniqueness of each therapist.
These combinations are used to tailor the massage towards your personal preferences and specific needs. This blend of techniques should relieve stress and tension in your body, and provide pain relief if needed. The therapist will likely ask you which parts of the body you’d like to focus on – it’s totally fine to choose an overall body massage.
Certain combinations are said to amplify the healing effects of massage. For example, a Swedish massage combined with a hot stone may increase circulation and metabolism quicker than using only one style.
A combination massage allows you to enjoy multiple modalities at once and it can help you discover your preferred massage modality in one session.
