Types of Massage Therapy at UNH

  • TRADITIONAL MASSAGE is the most common form of massage therapy in the United States. It is a very relaxing form of massage that uses long, gentle kneading strokes to improve circulation and to reduce stress.
  • STONE MASSAGE is a form of massage that uses heated stones placed on the body to warm the body and loosen tight muscles. Stone Massage is often used for muscle tension, back pain, stress-relief and insomnia. You should let the therapist know if the stones are too warm.

If you are pregnant, have high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes or are under a clinical practitioner's care, we recommend that you consult your practitioner before receiving a hot stone massage.

If you are booking your first massage, we recommend that you book a traditional massage.
