Types of Massage Therapy

Rainbow Spa Massage "massage therapy" encompasses many different techniques (see examples).

In general, therapists press, rub, and otherwise manipulate the muscles and other soft tissues of the body. They most often use their hands and fingers, but may use their forearms, elbows, or feet.

Rainbow Spa Massage, massage therapists work in a variety of settings, including private offices, studios, and sport & fitness facilities. We usually try to provide a calm, soothing environment.

Our therapists usually ask new patients about symptoms, medical history, and desired results. They may also perform an evaluation through touch, to locate painful or tense areas and determine how much pressure to apply.
