Swedish massage refers to a variety of techniques designed to relax muscles by applying pressure and rubbing in the same direction as the blood flowing to the heart.

Swedish or Relaxation Massage can provide an array of aid in daily stressors. As relaxation massage indicates, the focus is primarily on increasing blood flow, tissue mobility, providing length in ligaments and tendons, and helping you relax. Swedish Massage is a great choice with those who suffer from insomnia or any sleep deprivation because the flow of blood helps release melatonin, a natural hormone produced in our bodies to aid in sleep restoration.

In a typical one hour session, I include the whole body massage including back, arms, glutes, legs, feet, pectorals and neck. And don’t forget about the invigorating facial and scalp massage at the end! The medium amount of pressure applied makes the client feel an overall release and warmth with increased blood flow to the extremities. You should exit a relaxation session feeling refreshed & muscles like the texture of a marshmallow! As with any type of massage, be sure to show up well hydrated and ready to alleviate the days stress.
