Swedish Massage is a system of therapeutic, manual manipulations of the body's soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia) for the purpose of enhancing circulation to restore or maintain health and overall well-being. Increased circulation aids in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to all cells in the body and cleanses the body's tissues of cellular metabolic waste. Swedish massage also relaxes tense or spastic muscles, increases joint range of motion, reduces the recovery time from physical injuries, soothes and sedates the nervous system, increases respiration, reduces swelling from the accumulation of fluid in the extremities, and calms and soothes both emotional and physical stress. Swedish massage also assists in the removal of toxins from the body’s tissues.
In addition to hands on manipulation, heat and cold may be applied for therapeutic purposes and both active and passive movements and stretches may be employed as necessary means to enhance treatment.
An effective therapy which helps in overall well-being, Swedish Massage is not only relaxing but invigorating as well.
Deep tissue massage is a corrective bodywork modality focusing on the deeper layers of muscles within our bodies. In a deep tissue massage, the therapist will first warm up the superficial layers of muscle and then apply a strong pressure combined with a variety of techniques to the targeted underlying (deep) muscles. It is very effective at releasing chronic patterns of tension in the body, breaking up adhesions (knots), breaking muscle spasms, elongating shortened muscle fibers, addressing and eliminating scar tissue, increasing range of motion, correcting postural issues and imbalances, and improving the economy of motion. Some people experience discomfort during parts of a deep tissue massage and it is not uncommon to experience some degree of soreness for 24-36 hours after a deep tissue massage. Following this period of "soreness" a notable improvement is almost always experienced. Remember, as a client, you always have control over your session and can at any time ask your therapist to adjust the amount of pressure being applied to your body.
Sports Massage is a very specific type of bodywork utilized most frequently by true athletes who demand and expect optimal performance from their bodies at all times.

Sports massage is done vigorously in a very stimulating manner and is excellent for complementing athletic conditioning and development.
Prenatal Massage is a form of therapeutic bodywork that is geared to meet the unique needs of the pregnant woman.

Prenatal massage is usually begun during the 2nd and/or 3rd trimesters of pregnancy.
