Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is a both a relaxing and therapeutic experience for the client.

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

Another benefit of this massage type is the impact on the Autonomic Nervous System. Research demonstrates that this modality brings the client into a parasympathetic state (better known as "rest and digest") where the body can heal itself and move towards homeostatic balance.

This is one of my favorite modalities and I have had the opportunity to lecture at NYU Medical School on the subject of Swedish massage and the Autonomic Nervous System.
