Massage Therapy

Swedish vs. Deep Tissue: what’s the difference?
Swedish is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping. It helps you feel relaxed and energized. While Deep Tissue is a technique using slower, more forceful strokes to target deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It’s commonly used to help with muscle damage from injuries.

Massage therapy benefits can include reducing stress, increasing relaxation, reducing pain and muscle soreness, improving circulation, and lowering blood pressure.

Recommended Use
A general recommendation is every one-three weeks.
