Deep Tissue Massage, as its name says, focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It is designed to reach the deep sections of thick muscles, specifically the individual muscle fibres. 
Using deep muscle compression and friction along the grain of the muscle, the purpose of deep tissue massage is to unstick the fibres of the muscles and release both toxins and deeply held tension points. Specific hand positions and strokes are used to respond to various tissues while breath and movement techniques are employed to release muscular congestion. It helps to loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly. It is both corrective and therapeutic. It is beneficial for many physical problems, including sports injuries and chronic pain. Because it works very deeply, emotional issues can also be addressed, when these have been stored in the body.
Massage treatments take place on a massage table on bare skin. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on specific areas and may cause some soreness during or after the session. If the massage is done correctly however, you should feel better within a day or two. Water helps to eliminate toxins from the body so it is important to drink plenty of water after a deep tissue massage to help this process along. 

Swedish Massage is a system of long strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, percussion, vibration and shaking motions that apply pressure between muscles and bones, rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. Swedish Massage feels good, is relaxing and invigorating.

The main purpose of Swedish Massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Some other benefits of this massage style include shortening recovery time from muscular strain, increased circulation without increased heart load, stretching of ligaments and tendons, skin stimulation and soothing of the nervous system. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested as part of a regular program for stress management. 

The sequence of techniques usually used in a session of Swedish Massage are:

Effleurage: gliding strokes with the palms, thumbs and/or fingertips.
Petrissage: kneading movements with the hands, thumbs and/or fingertips.
Friction: circular pressures with the palms of hands, thumbs and/or fingertips.
Vibration: oscillatory movements that shake or vibrate the body.
Percussion: brisk hacking or tapping.
Passive and Active Movements: bending and stretching.
The patient is required to be appropriately unclothed for the treatments, which would usually be for an hour, although longer or shorter massage treatments are also possible.

Lomi Lomi Massage:                              
Hawaiian massage is known as “Ka Huna”, Lomi Lomi”, or “Temple Style” massage. Traditionally, Hawaiian massage was part of the Hawaiian Rites of Passage as it is thought to be both transformational and healing. It balances the body and the mind, and heals a person physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Ka Huna Massage:
In the Hawaiian tradition, a Ka Huna is a healer. Ka Huna practitioners use their hands, forearms and elbows to give a massage. Music is played during the massage and the practitioner may dance around the table using hula or tai chi style movements. This helps them to attune to the natural rhythms of your body and it also helps the practitioner to harmonise the rhythms that occur between a person’s body, mind and soul.

Anybody is able to receive a Ka Huna massage, which is also commonly called Ka Huna bodywork. It is excellent for people with conditions such as:

grief or loss
physical discomfort or injuries

Before undergoing the massage, the practitioner will first talk to you about things such as your mental, emotional and physical in order to determine the best approach for the treatment. Clients are encouraged to focus on their breath during the massage. Inhaling allows you to draw fresh energy and inspiration into yourself and exhaling allows you to expel tension and negative thoughts.

Lomi Lomi means “to rub and roll”. It is a loving massage in that the practitioner touches and treats the client with love, respect and compassion. Lomi Lomi is also known as “loving hands”. It is a unique style of massage that sees the practitioner using their hands, forearms, elbows, fingers, feet, knees, and even sticks and stones to massage their client.

The massage works by stimulating the natural flow of energy within the body in order to bring about changes in the physical, emotional and spiritual areas. Stress and tension is released so that energy can flow freely once more. It is also deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. Lomi Lomi is good for:

detoxification and waste removal
improving the immune system
stimulating lymphatic, circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems
releasing muscle tension
improving flexibility
improving muscle tone
One or two practitioners may give a Lomi Lomi massage and different parts of the body may be massaged at the same time. Full and under-body strokes are used to help bring the body back into its correct rhythm and balance.

Finally, the practitioner may also talk to their client about incorporating other practices into their lives such as prayer, meditation, or a change of diet.
