Styles we use in massage therapy range from short, percussive to long, smooth strokes, using oils and lotions in a different time from 5 minutes to 2 hours. 

The most common and best-known type of massage is Swedish massage. It includes sports massage, deep tissue massage and aromatherapy massage which involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on utmost layers of muscles. This type of massage is not only relaxing but also energizing by relieving muscle tension. And it may even help after an injury.

After taking part in outdoor activities, you should treat yourself with a 50 or 60-minute Swedish or deep tissue massage. Deep tissue massage is best in releasing chronic muscle tension which focuses on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia. Though less rhythmic than other types of massage, deep tissue massage can be quite therapeutic – relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries, such as the back sprain.

According to a study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, after a single 45 to 60-minute deep tissue massage, people’s blood pressure fell. Additionally, such type of massage can reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin, as shown in a 2010 meta-analysis in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.
