From the gentler varieties of massage to the more vigorous styles, we’ll cater your treatment to your likes and needs.
The primary goals of the gentler Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body, increase the level of oxygen in the blood, decrease muscle toxins, improve circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Deep tissue massage offers the deepest pressure to release chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). The goal in deep tissue massage is to breakdown adhesions (tense areas within the muscle) to relieve pain, inflammation and expand range of motion of the muscles and joints.
