Although it is primarily sought out for it’s relaxation benefits, it is the foundation of every great massage- even Deep Tissue work! Your practitioner will always want to connect deeper strokes with soothing Swedish strokes so that the body will be encouraged to integrate the bodywork rather than putting up defenses.   The primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body; This is accomplished by utilizing long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.  Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR SESSION:

Sessions will vary depending on individual needs, but you can expect a  session that is soothing and relaxing for the entire body.  Your therapist will use oil and long gliding strokes, focusing on the outer muscle layers.  This is a perfect session for people who are new to massage and for those who are seeking a more gentle massage session.
