Swedish Massage is a relaxation massage that incorporates several therapeutic techniques adapted to your physiological needs. These therapeutic techniques provide a range of solutions that include recovery from injury to relaxation and stress reduction. You can choose the level of massage from light, moderate to deep pressure.
I use various massage strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion, to help you improve how you feel. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging. They include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
Swedish Massage Therapy Is Ideal For:
I design my Swedish Massage Therapy for your overall self-care. This type of massage gives you a break from the stresses and tensions of life. At the same time, it provides you with a chance to feel like you are being taken care of. Aside from its physical benefits, it can also help stabilize your mental health and provide much needed relaxation benefits. Other benefits that draw people to the Swedish massage, as it is often used for:
Significant Stress Relief
According to scientific studies, it has been revealed that Swedish massage can considerably lower stress levels. These studies also indicated the connection between the physical relaxation effects of Swedish massage and their relation to reducing fatigue and decreased symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Swedish massage has also proven beneficial as part of a complete pain management program for sports-related injuries and chronic conditions, including arthritis. As the muscles are relaxed and local circulation is increased, the body is more at ease, helping to reduce pain. This massage can also manage chronic pain that comes with many illnesses and conditions (neck stiffness, hip/shoulder pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, etc.). By decreasing pain, this type of massage can help patients relax and reduce stress, improving the overall recovery & well-being.
Movements used (Effleurage, Petrissage, Friction, Tapotement) are similar to how the body circulates blood. Because of this, Swedish massage therapy can promote healthy circulation, increase blood flow, and help the body remove metabolic waste quickly and effectively. Better circulation also improves overall health since increased circulation, and blood flow means other organs can work more effectively.
While techniques such as deep tissue are meant to work out knots from deeper tissue layers, Swedish focuses more on soothing techniques that help you feel more at peace. I use kneading, vibration, rhythmic tapping, and an otherwise gentle touch to reinvigorate the spirit and transport you to a place of bliss.

- Increased mobility and flexibility of the joints and muscles
