As the best known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of a Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Hot Stone Massage
This type of massage melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. The goal behind Hot Stone massage therapy is that the direct heat from the stones relaxes the muscles, allowing the therapist access deeper into the muscle.
