Swedish Massage
This is a popular and traditional type of massage which is focused on relaxation above all.  Swedish is a soothing, smooth, full-body massage style from Europe, which uses mostly long, slow strokes and muscle kneading, with a little gentle tapping thrown in.  Great for stress relief, general muscle loosening, blood and lymph circulation, and muscle soreness from overactivity.   Swedish, as with most styles of massage, lowers the heart rate, lowers blood pressure, reduces inflammation, delivers oxygen to the muscle cells,  and eliminates wastes.  Great for beginners, those who have not had a massage for a while, those who are experiencing acute muscle soreness from exercise, as well as those that don’t have any specific pain or injury issues (whoever those people might be…).

Deep Tissue, Therapeutic Massage
Unlike Swedish, this style is squarely in the ‘no pain, no gain’ camp, because here the therapist is trying to discover and focus in on your most sore and aching spots, which are by nature the most tender.  These ‘knots’ or trigger points can develop on the muscles as well as the tendons, ligaments, and fascia.  Sometimes you have to ‘sit’ on a spot until in releases, which takes time.  Moreover, the therapist works more deeply than in Swedish style, since muscles and fascia are often layered on top of one another, and mild pressure is often not enough to reach the lower layers. 
    Deep Tissue is great for pain relief, release of lactic acid and toxins, joint and spine mobility, and general muscle loosening.  Some body parts like feet and scalp may be skipped as a trade off for the enhanced focus on your most troubled areas, and some soreness for a few days is expected (in the beginning). 
Sports Massage
 This one is harder to define as it developed out of the specific needs of dealing with fully clothed or unclothed athletes either before, after, or in-between sporting events, as well as during off-season training.  Therefore, some Sports Massage is designed as a general warm up for athletic activity in order to reduce the chance of injury and acheive desired range of motion; some as a cool down and restoration after that activity to prevent muscle soreness, counter fatigue, and shorten recovery time; and some as focused injury rehabilitation.  
     In the Spa setting, it has evolved to mean enhanced focus on one or more specific areas, more focused than even Deep Tissue.  (And it is not limited to those with problems directly related to sports, but rather from any specific activity such a carrying babies or typing at a computer all day.)  So we may just work mostly on that one shoulder that has rotator cuff problems, or just on your low back/hips/glutes for that nagging lumbar pain.  The intent is to restore full function and mobility to that troublesome area, so that the client may be pain-free and able to perform at their best.  A variety of techniques may be used, including range of motion, stretching, trigger point, myo-fascial release, deep tissue, cupping, fascia-blaster–it’s a ‘whatever works’ approach, and not a ‘feel-good’ massage.  The client can either undress or remain clothed, depending on how much stretching and range of motion is to be done as opposed to oil-based Deep Tissue.  A shot of whiskey before, during, or after the session is recommended… 
     Generally, the therapist doing Sports Massage has to have not only a greater knowledge of anatomy and physiology than your average therapist, but also a knowledge of common injuries, as well as the unique motions and strains on the body particular to that sport or daily activity.   Generally, several sessions in close proximity are required since the problems are more severe and are in need of immediate attention.
Thai Massage
This is the ancient massage style of Thailand, which grew out of an appropriation of Indian Yogic postures and traditional Ayurvedic medicine by the people of Thailand.  Massage in India–known as Abhyanga–is heavily oil based and uses herbally infused oils to achieve balance in your specific constitution (Dosha). 
However, since it is very difficult to stretch a person with oils on them (think slippery fish…), and difficult as well to do certain Yogic postures naked underneath a sheet with any modicum of modesty, the Thai people starting doing massage fully clothed on mat, with no oils at all.  The focus is of course on the stretching rather than any gliding and sliding motions.  Compressions are also used for warm up, and some pressure point and energy meridian work similiar to Japanese Shiatsu is also incorporated. 
     Since most people in our society–even regular exercisers–don’t do adequate stretching, Thai Massage has gone from been virtually unknown in the West in the 90’s to being one of the most exciting forms off bodywork out there, since it fulfills a real lacuna in many fitness regimens.  So if you have heard of “Lazy Man’s Yoga”, this is the stuff, cause how else can you have someone do your workout for you?   Moreover, you will find that even if you do regularly stretch, you will get into the postures more deeply with someone else doing them one you, since they have better leverage.  A must for the fitness crowd and for the sedentary!
Thai Foot Massage
uses some stretching of the ankles and calves like the general Thai Massage, but also uses some lotion and reflexology techniques to affect different parts of the body which are connected to different zones of the feet.   Great also for general relaxation and those tired, sore feet!
Cupping
Cupping is an ancient technique that was part of most traditional healing systems throughout the world–even in the United States up through the War Between the States in the 19th Century.  The basic idea is the creation of a vacuum pressure that pulls the soft tissues away from the body, rather than pressing down upon them.  So it is more like a sustained, localised stretch than a massage.   Cupping is very good at releasing fascia and muscle adhesions (knots) and bringing in fresh, oxygenated blood, but it also is one of the strongest ways to pull metabolic wastes and toxins out of the tissues, all while stimulating lymphatic flow; hence, it is great at detoxification.  (And who needs that?…) 
       Cupping is also wonderful because it can be performed within a particular massage session, so you get the benefits of cupping while you are being massaged, unlike at an acupuncturist, where they leave the room after affixing the cups.  Cupping helps with the recovery of joint-related issues such as rotator cuff tears, frozen shoulder, and lumbar issues.
