SWEDISH a.k.a. CLASSIC massage– this massage brings you into a blissful state of relaxation. Your massage therapist accomplishes this with long, gliding strokes, gentle kneading, active and passive movements of the muscles. Blending light and deep strokes, Swedish massage works by reducing tension, alleviating muscle soreness, and gradually breaking up adhesions (muscle “knots”) and improving circulation and overall energy. The Swedish massage represents the basis for all other types of massage, though it has its therapeutic effects it is more focused on relaxation.
