There are different types of massage therapy techniques, each with its own focus and approach. Some common types include Swedish massage, deep tissue and fascial release. The choice of massage technique depends on the individual’s specific needs, preferences, and any underlying health conditions. 

Massage therapy is often used as a complementary therapy alongside conventional medical treatments, such as Chiropractic, Acupuncture, and Physiotherapy for conditions such as chronic pain, sports injuries, migraines, rehabilitation post-surgery and much more.
