What's The Best Massage To Book?

If you’re looking for the best massage in Racine, it may require you to step outside your comfort zone. Most clients find themselves curious about the services on the massage menu. They settle on a Swedish massage simply based on familiarity. If you’ve been booking your massages this way, you might be missing out on many therapeutic benefits.

As a therapeutic massage therapist, I encourage you to ask me questions prior to booking so I can help guide you to the best option to meet your needs. At Massage & Stretch you simply let us know if you’re goal is relaxation or therapeutic. From there we may perform deep tissue or Swedish.   But what’s the difference?

When you receive a deep tissue massage, the key thing to remember is it doesn’t have to hurt to work. Yes there’s a such thing as a massage that “hurts so good.” In fact that’s the type of massage I personally enjoy. But deep tissue massage is about more than just pressure. We employ a multitude of modality to approach your specific complaints, pain or dysfunction. Feel free to read more about our Deep Tissue Massage.

Conversely, there may be times where all you want and need is to relax. We can be accommodating to those needs as well. You should not assume that Swedish means soft or light pressure. Pressure, regardless if the goal is therapeutic or relaxing, is always client directed due to the subjective needs of each person. Read about how we perform our Swedish Massage.

Finally, what you may not be used to is something Massage & Stretch is known for. We believe stretching is a key component to good bodywork. When necessary, we perform Active Isolated Stretching techniques in combination with massage. If interested, we can provide you with instructions on some stretched that can be incorporated into your daily self care routine!
