Types of Massage

Lifetime Massage provides ethical massage for men and women.
I describe my style of bodywork as Deep Tissue Relaxation Massage. I primarily combine Swedish Massage with Neuromuscular Therapy Techniques in one session. But depending on the client’s preference, I can offer just one or the other.

Neuromuscular Therapy

This type of bodywork tends to focus on problem areas and is usually deeper and more specific than Swedish massage. This work focuses not only on muscles but also their attachment sites and their connective tissues (fascia, tendons, ligaments). Trigger point work is often a focus in this type of treatment work. This type of treatment work can also incorporate the client’s active and passive movements.

I primarily rely on Neuromuscular therapy when offering deep tissue massage, treatment work, and sport/ortho work. These approaches are very specific and often address an injury or a chronic soft tissue imbalance.

Swedish Massage

This type of massage usually incorporates longer, broader and more flowing massage strokes. The depth of Swedish massage can vary, depending on the client’s preference. Full body massages (as opposed to massages focused on treatment of a specific injured area) tend to rely heavily on Swedish work.

In addition to the two foundations of my massage style, I also offer the types below. Click each to learn more:
