Holistic Swedish Massage
Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation, as it is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Additional Swedish massage techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching. Before and during your Swedish massage session, communication is encouraged with your professional massage therapist so that your massage is customized to your specific needs.

Myofascial Release massage:
Myofascial (pronounced Myo-fashal) is derived from the Latin words ‘myo’ for muscle and ‘fascia’ for band. Fascia can be interpreted as a universe beneate the skin. It is a 3D continuous web of elastin and collagen fibres surrounded by a viscous fluid and it surrounds, infuses and protects every other tissue, tendon, muscle, bone, ligament and organ of the body. In healthy conditions the fascial system is relaxed and wavy which allows us to move safely without restriction or pain. However, sometimes memories can become locked into the fascial system and manifest themselves in physical pain. A sustained, gentle pressure is applied allowing the fascia to elongate naturally and return to it’s normal resting length.
