Of those that are most widely practiced in the massage industry, the most popular bodywork therapies include modalities like Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, acupressure, reflexology, sports massage and chair massage, among others.
Acupressure massage therapy, for example, is founded on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theories and is not only used on people, but as a form of canine and equine massage as well.
Using meridian therapy as a guide to depressing key points on the body to relieve tension and blockages; and to restore the flow of energy (Chi) to the body, this particular type of massage therapy is believed to restore balance and enhance natural-healing capabilities.
Another form of massage therapy, reflexology, is a type of massage that is also rooted in Oriental medicine.
It is believed that by applying pressure techniques to these reflex zones, that these corresponding organ systems can be stimulated toward healing.
Deep tissue massage therapy is one of the foundational bodywork therapies taught in almost all massage and healing arts schools today.
