Swedish Relaxation Massage
Most popular type of massage for relaxation. Designed to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system to increase circulation and decrease tension. The process by which this is obtained, is to use massage therapy techniques that are not painful, but slow, deliberate and often involve the treatment of superficial structures, using smooth, long kneading strokes.
Deep Tissue Massage
Uses firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia; connective tissue surrounding muscles. Used for chronic aches and contracted areas such as stiff neck, upper back, low back, leg muscles, and shoulders. Very beneficial for injury rehabilitation, limited mobility issues, muscle strains, postural problems, and many more.
A complementary choice for prenatal care; a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Relieves many of the discomforts experienced during pregnancy; back aches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches, and oedema/swelling. Encourages blood flow, lymph circulation, and relaxation which aids in improving sleep; reducing depression/anxiety caused by hormonal changes.
