Swedish | Lite Touch

Most commonly requested. Can be done with medium or light pressure. Swedish Massage is best known as a relaxation massage and is a very destressing therapeutic style of massage and bodywork. It is the most well known wellness massage style. Lotion or oil is used with an array of five different strokes. Rolling, kneading, gliding-sliding, rhythmic tapping, friction and vibration are used to help the body’s internal circulation.

Relaxation massage is a gentle Swedish massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes to help you relax. The massage therapist will move at a slower pace and use lighter pressure. In a relaxation massage, there is less emphasis on working out chronic underlying muscle tension -- the adhesions or "knots" and muscle restrictions in the muscle tissue. That's because deep tissue work can be uncomfortable, and during a relaxation massage you just want to drift away and feel good. In a relaxation massage, the therapist won't push your limits in order to get the muscle to release. You might even fall asleep! It's a good choice for someone who is getting a massage for the first time, or someone who just wants to bring their stress level down. Relaxation massage is also good for someone who wants to a get massage as a special treat once a year. It's not realistic to expect that you can get rid of all your knots in one massage. But to drift into a deeply relaxed state in fifty minutes -- that's doable!

Benefits of Swedish Massage

The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, improved stiffness and greater flexibility. It is one of the best types of massage for relaxing and reducing stress and why it is many times referred to as a wellness massage. Many patients with osteoarthritis experience relief with minimal discomfort from a Swedish massage.

reflexology

Foot Reflexology

About Reflexology

Reflexology is a science which deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help many health problems in a natural way, a type of preventative maintenance. Reflexology is a serious advance in the health field and should not be confused with massage.

Benefits of Foot Reflexology

Foot reflexology is effective in bringing about a deep state of relaxation. The solar plexus is the nerve center where stress is stored. When the solar plexus reflex point is pressed, it is as if all of the stress in the body is eliminated. Because stress can greatly affect the immune system and leave one vulnerable to serious illnesses such as cancer, it is important to relieve it. Reflexology can help in this way.

Improved Circulation

Reflexology can improve blood circulation in the feet and throughout the body. The gentle stroking of the feet and the application of certain hand and finger techniques improves blood flow to vital organs. Blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to these organs, nourishing body tissues. If a part of the body is injured, foot reflexology can help repair the injured tissue.
