Swedish Massage (60 minutes)
Our massage therapists have mastered the techniques that are used in a Swedish massage, to give you the ultimate relaxing and rejuvenated massage. A Swedish massage is a full-body massage that uses body oils to promote mental and physical relaxation and improve blood circulation. This is a very popular massage treatment with numerous health benefits:
- Improves sleep
- Reduces stress, depression, anxiety
- Improves range of motion
- Calms the nervous system
- Relieves muscle cramps/fatigue
- Improves lymphatic drainage
The Swedish massage is a great introduction to massage treatments. The firm but gentle strokes are deeply relaxing and promote mental and physical well being. All major muscle groups are addressed, and each stroke is designed to increase blood flow towards the heart. You will begin your massage lying down on your stomach on our comfortable massage table, where your therapist will begin long firm strokes along your back, shoulders, and lower legs. Halfway through your session, you will turn over where your shoulders, arms, and front of legs will be massaged. There are several techniques used that make this massage so invigorating, the most used is the Effleurage. This technique is a gentle gliding movement towards the heart, your therapist will use light-to-medium pressure depending on your comfort level. The purpose is to warm the muscles, relax the body and calm the mind. As your therapist relaxes you with various Swedish techniques, your small and large muscles will feel tension releasing and an overall state of full-body bliss.
