Swedish Massage includes a variety of techniques specifically designed to improve circulation, bringing oxygen and other nutrients to body tissues. It can relieve muscle tension and pain, increase flexibility and mobility, and help clear lactic acid and other waste, which reduces pain and stiffness in muscles and joints. Massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time, with the aim of relieving both emotional and physical stress. Your massage therapist uses massage lotions or oils in long, smooth strokes, kneading motions as well as other techniques to give you the depth of massage that you desire. Choose a ½ hour, 1 hour or 1 ½ hour session.
