General Relaxation Massage (Swedish)
Relaxation massage, also referred to as Swedish massage, is intended to do just what it says, to help facilitate a deeper state of relaxation and comfort. It is a full body treatment consisting of long, flowing strokes and gentle kneading with soft to moderate pressure.
Research shows many benefits of relaxation massage, including increased circulation, decreased blood pressure, increased lymphatic drainage, tension relief of sore/tight muscles, and decreased stress.
Clients often fall asleep with this treatment, feeling much more refreshed, and at ease in both mind and body afterward. We do not do a whole lot of full body relaxation massage sessions. However, we will incorporate many Swedish massage techniques into our therapeutic treatments.
