Your massage will last between 30 and 75 min and your therapist will take into account any problem areas to ensure that your treatment is comfortable and soothing.
Swedish Massage (Back & Shoulders / Full Body)
Swedish massage is a whole-body therapeutic massage treatment that works the soft tissues and muscles to help restore health- creating a calming and balancing effect on the nervous system. Unlike Deep Tissue massage, Swedish Massage uses softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger where there is thicker muscle coverage. This adjustment of pressure makes it an ideal massage for relaxation. Best known for soothing tight muscles and boosting well-being, Swedish massage also offers a whole host of other health benefits, including:· Easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins· Improving blood circulation and blow flow throughout the body· Helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple and improving range of motion· Reducing emotional and physical stress· Easing back pain and chronic pain
