Difference between Deep Tissue Massage and Swedish Massage 1

People who want to try new massage techniques are often confused by comparing different massage types. Moreover, they tend to identify them as the same. In fact, each massage type is a unique technique that has pros and cons, as well as various indications and contraindications. Many people consider Swedish massage and deep tissue massage the same, but it’s wrong. So, let’s make everything clear for you to know what are the effects of both and what to expect from the session.

Swedish massage

People with little or no experience may not know what a Swedish massage is and how it differs from the deep tissue technique. But there are some differences. In fact, this technique is quite ordinary, but the effect is not on muscles (on the contrary to the deep tissue massage) but mainly on joints. This technique was invented by the Swedish therapist Ling in 1813. He combined different ancient techniques and it resulted in a Swedish massage people widely use both for treatment and pleasure nowadays.

Swedish massage technique

Since it is considered not a standard method of healing the body, this technique is worth paying attention to. Although classic massage techniques are used, particular attention is paid to the deep impact on the joints.

The masseuse begins with warming up the seals and stretching the vascular-nerve bundles. The basis of the technique is to move from the periphery to the center. For example, if a masseuse is working on a leg, then she moves from foot to hip. Caressing your arm, she will move from hand to shoulder. Special attention is paid to small joints, which are rubbed with special care. Most of the session is warming-up with fingers, and the remaining time is spent on stroking. Swedish massage usually begins with rubbing the back and ends with the head.

In our agency, a happy ending is included in this service. So, during the procedure, you will enjoy not only the healing effect but also will get the erotic stimulation of your erogenous zones. Our sweet masseuses know what to do to the male body to bring him to paradise.

In any case, before starting the course of treatment, it’s better to consult your doctor. Very often, doctors themselves recommend Swedish massages to people who have suffered various injuries and cannot restore joints and tendons. It will be useful to try this procedure for people who are in a sedentary job or older people.

If you want to try it for the first time, this article may help you to get a better understanding of what to expect from an erotic massage session. So, let’s proceed to deep tissue massage.

Deep tissue massage

Deep Tissue Massage is perhaps one of the most efficient and safe ways to work with the connective tissues of our body. It is aimed at eliminating deformations in fascia, tendons, and ligaments. We assure you: this method has no competitors among massage techniques when it comes to working with connective tissues. As you can see, this is the first and probably one of the main differences between deep tissue massage and the Swedish technique. As you remember, in Swedish one more attention is paid to joints.

The connective tissue is about half the weight of the human body. It gives the body shape, supports, and binds all organs to each other. As a result of a sedentary lifestyle, injuries or clamps, fascia can shorten and become inflamed, which leads to impaired blood supply and dystrophic phenomena. You may be surprised, but weakening one muscle leads to an overload of other muscles, which entails new problems. To normalize the condition of your body, we strongly recommend visiting a deep body massage at least once a week.

Deep tissue technique

Deep tissue massage techniques are fundamentally different from classical ones. These are special holds and tissue stretches, for which the tips or phalanges of the fingers, fist, forearm, or elbow are used. The exposure is mild, smooth, and painless. Since every movement and pressure takes a long time, ergonomics is very important. The masseuse/masseur should be able to stand or sit so that she/he can stretch tissue with the constant force for 1- 4 minutes.

One of the features of connective tissue is that it is unable to stretch rapidly. If you try to stretch the fascia quickly and aggressively, this will lead to injuries and micro-breaks. As a result, instead of releasing and restoring normal muscle function, one gets inflammation, pain, and deterioration. Our masseuses are professionals, so you shouldn’t worry that there will be any mistakes.

At the end of your session, you will proceed to one of the most pleasant parts of this massage. Yes, we are talking about caressing your erogenous zones. Our masseuses know how to please you, so be sure every area will be taken care of.

Effect people get

It is believed that this practice is the most effective method to apply on the muscles of the forearm, large thoracic muscle, or other muscles that overlap each other. The purpose of the massage is to restore the structural integrity and balance of the body, relieve the chronic tension that is always in the deep layers of connective tissue and muscles. Breathing after this procedure becomes deeper, people feel energetic and happy. This procedure is a cure for people who suffer from muscle tension and various chronic diseases connected with it.

Besides, it ends erotically, so can something be better?

Deep tissue indications and contraindications

Like any other procedure, this one has a number of indications and contraindications.

So, it is useful for people who suffer from:

  • Back pain;
  • osteoarthritis;
  • scars one got because of injuries or operations;
  • tendon tension;
  • cervical pain.
  • As for contraindications, they include:
  • Acute inflammation;
  • bone fracture;
  • tumors;
  • hematomas;
  • stretching of ligaments;
  • varicose veins;
  • skin infections;
  • rheumatic arthritis.


So, let’s summarize everything to underline the main differences between these two procedures. The Swedish massage is intended for relaxation, improvement of blood circulation, and healing joints, while deep tissue massage is used for the relaxation of muscles. Both can be used for healing purposes, but it’s better to consult a doctor before making a booking.
