Swedish Massage is not defined with pressure but with process. It can be delivered with whichever pressure meets your comfort level, but the process is to work through the body with long smooth strokes, from origin to insertion point without necessarily engaging the muscles or utilizing trigger points. Even those of us who are die-hard deep tissue fanatics appreciate a good relaxing Swedish massage from time to time. It's the perfect way to relieve stress and feel rejuvenated.
Trigger Point Therapy is the process of applying pressure to an active point in the origin, insertion, or belly of the muscle to trigger contraction and release. Often you will feel your muscle begin to "shake" during a massage. This is usually due to engaging an active trigger point that prompts a gentle spasm in the muscle. The muscle begins to contract and release, exercising through its own tension.
Ashiatsu is often referred to as "back walking". With the use of a suspended bar, The Licensed Professional Therapist supports much of her weight, as she walks along the back muscles.
