What is a Swedish Massage?
Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
SWEDISH MASSAGE TECHNIQUES
Additional Swedish massage techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching. Before and during your Swedish massage session, communication is encouraged between us so that your massage is customized to your specific needs.

Arm and Hand Massage Therapy
Recommended to promote circulation and rotation and dexterity in manual or sports activity.
It is also beneficial for individuals who have mild to moderate arthritis.
Back Neck and Shoulder Massage
The shoulder and neck together hold up the heaviest part of the body: the head.
Almost all daily activities such as working on a computer, writing, driving, etc cause the muscles of the shoulders to get overly stressed.
This problem can be compounded by an incorrect posture, or wrong sleeping positions. Shoulder pain can also be caused due to sports related injuries.
This type of massage is recommended to promote circulation and rotation and dexterity in manual or sports activity.
Upper and Lower Leg
My massage technique will stimulate a clear improvement of lymphatic drainage.
You will experience an increased range of mobility by reducing existing or potential muscle spasms / cramps
You will also gain preparation of tissues for intense usage e.g. for high impact activities
Abdominal massage is a special kind of massage that seeks to alleviate problems associated with the abdomen by keeping the abdominal area healthy and strong, promoting proper functioning of the organs inside the abdominal cavity.
