We get the question a lot when booking our clients for their first time massage. With a few options to choose from on our menu, it is hard to know which one is the best for you. We decided to break down the difference between a Swedish massage versus a Therapeutic massage. For starters, the pressure between these two massages is not the difference!

Swedish Massage

  • Long fluid strokes
  • Designed to help relax the body and mind
  • Pressure can vary from light to deep
  • Relaxing and comfortable experience throughout
  • Targets the superficial layers of muscle and focuses on the parts of the body that tend to hold the most tension

Therapeutic Massage

  • Combination of pinpoint, broad strokes, & other techniques to release tension and adhesions in the deep muscle layers
  • Designed to relieve musculoskeletal pain
  • Pressure can vary from light to deep
  • May be uncomfortable at times, but not painful
