Relaxation / Swedish Massage feels good and is relaxing and invigorating. Various techniques include long strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, percussion, vibration and shaking motions to help release stored muscular tension. A combination of gentle and medium pressure is applied to the muscles and between the bones. By rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart, circulation is increased. Essential oil blends and gentle firm strokes promote a deep level of relaxation. The muscles are warmed and toxins removed. A facial massage and energy balancing conclude this tranquil experience. This provides a general sense of well-being and harmony.
