Our Relaxation Massage is a traditional, gentle Swedish massage which incorporates long gentle strokes for a relaxing experience that’s perfect for a first-time spa goers or those looking for something simply relaxing.
What is a Swedish Massage?
Swedish massage therapy is what comes to mind when most people think about massage. It is the most well-known style of massage techniques with the primary goal of total body relaxation.
A Swedish massage achieves total body relaxation through the rubbing of the muscles with long gentle strokes in the direction of the blood returning to the heart.
This massage technique also provides an additional benefit of
- Increased oxygen levels in the blood
- Increased circulation throughout the body
- Improved flexibility while tension in muscles is relieved
- Decreasing the toxins built up in the muscles
Swedish Massage Techniques
A Swedish massage may include additional massage techniques such as circular pressure applied by the hands and palms of the therapist, firm kneading in high tension areas, bending and stretching of your limbs, and percussion-like tapping along your body.
Communication is Key
Before and even during your Relaxation Massage, it is important to communicate with your professional massage therapist primary any areas of concern, or any discomfort you may be feeling. We wish to make sure your massage is customized to your specific needs without making you feel out of your comfort zone.
