Relaxation/Swedish Massage

The physical application of touch used to manipulate soft body tissues on a person to create a healing effect.

Swedish massage is the most widely practiced form of relaxation massage and it is comprised of five basic strokes, effleurage, petrissage, friction, vibration and percussion. Benefits of a relaxation massage may include:

  • Improved blood circulation
  • Improved elimination of waste and toxins
  • Increased joint mobility and body movement
  • Stress reduction and the promotion of relaxation
  • Shortened injury recovery time
  • Stimulating the nervous system, increasing alertness
  • Promoting good body posture
  • Improved skin condition
  • Decreased muscle and joint pain
  • Enhancing and maintaining optimum health

If you are feeling depressed, stressed or overwhelmed, or have trouble sleeping, then a relaxation massage maybe just what you need.
