Our Swedish massage involves the use of hands, forearms or elbows to manipulate the superficial layers of the muscles to improve mental and physical health. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of the massage. The benefits of Swedish massage include increased blood circulation, mental and physical relaxation , decreased stress and muscle tension, and improved range of motion.
Our deep tissue massage incorporates slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. A deep tissue massage can be quite therapeutic -- relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries, such as back sprain.
*If you have a yearly membership with the studio all your spa services including massage are 10% off.
