This is the basic technique that most people think of when considering massage for stress reduction and relaxation. Swedish Massage features long, graceful strokes which increases circulation and blood-flow, decreases muscle tension, and contributes to a feeling of peaceful rejuvenation.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a highly detoxifying type of massage. The stones themselves actually become the massage tool that I use. The heat helps to relax the muscles and assimilate the circulation allowing toxins to rise up to the skin surface. In combining with a Swedish massage technique further release of the muscle is obtained.
