Swedish Massage

This modality is typically referred to as Classic Massage or Relaxation Massage. It is a both a relaxing and therapeutic experience for the client.

A combination of massage strokes, alternating pressure and passive muscle stretches are used to ease tension, relieve pain, improve overall mobility, increase wellness and muscle tone.

Another goal of this type of session is to affect the Autonomic Nervous System and bring the client into a parasympathetic state (better known as "rest and digest") where the body can heal itself and move towards homeostatic balance.

While this is a full body massage, the work is always client centered. It is important to not only focus on the body as a whole, but to address specific areas that need more of helping hand.
