What type of massage is for me? 

Of course there is still good reason to have a massage if you don't feel you have a 'complaint', as such. Prevention is better than cure, and a regular massage is a fabulous investment in your own wellbeing.

Any type of massage will help reduce anxiety levels, promote mobility and sleep.

Hot stones, Slavic and Swedish are particularly recommended for deep relaxation.

If you have recent injury or problems resulting from a longstanding issue, remedial/sports would be the recommendation. However, everyone is different and what is one persons preference will not be another's', so some experimentation is the key.
