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. Accompanied by the natural stress-relieving effects of aromatherapy, this massage involves 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.
Deep tissue massage therapy provides a deeper pressure which is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). Studies have found that massage modalities like deep tissue reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate, while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin. Every deep tissue massage session is done in the presence of essential oils, for the absolute stress-relieving experience.
