Deep Tissue/Relaxation/Swedish/Therapeutic Massage
Swedish massage uses kneading strokes to increase circulation, promote relaxation and dissolve muscle tension. The therapist will apply cream, oil or lotion to the skin to help towards long, smooth strokes.
Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage – to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. But it's also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies, and our experienced therapist, trained in prenatal massage, adjust their techniques accordingly.
