Massage Therapy

Swedish

Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension 

 

 

  • Choose a Swedish massage for relaxation or managing minor pain.

  • This type of massage is also good for people new to massage.

  • Deep Tissue

    Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). 

     

     

  • Deep tissue massage is a good option if you have a lot of muscle tension or chronic pain.

  • Avoid this type of massage if you’re overly sensitive to pressure

  • Aromatherapy

    An aromatherapy massage is a Swedish massage with scented plant oils (known as essential oils) added to the massage oil. The soothing effects of aromatherapy massage can benefit a variety of conditions, including headaches, insomnia, certain digestive disorders, back pain, and even premenstrual symptoms.   

     

     

  • Aromatherapy combines the gentle touches of Swedish massage with the addition of essential oils.

  • Do not use this type of massage if you’re sensitive to smell or essential oils.
