Swedish Style Massage

Swedish massage is probably the most commonly known in America and most of Europe. It is a light to medium pressure massage and the goal of this modality is basic relaxation, increased circulation, decreased overall tension, increased feeling of well being.

This modality is done on a massage table covered in sheets and blankets to keep the client warm and comfortable during the massage. Pillows may also be used to further the clients comfort.  A treatment is usually one hour but can vary depending upon what the client and therapist are working to achieve during the session which is usually discussed before the work begins.

This modality is done with the client being disrobed to their personal comfort level. The Therapist leaves the room while the client disrobes/dresses and gets on/off the massage table. Although the client is disrobed they will remain covered on the table at all times during the session. Only the area that is being worked on will be exposed at any given time.

Since this modality mostly consists of long strokes and gliding strokes, oil, lotion or cream is used on the skin to achieve a gentle soothing glide. Let your therapist know if you have a preference. Only the finest oils and lotions are used in the studio, however if you have a specific oil or lotion you would like the therapist to use, please provide it for your therapist before the session.

The massage  session is based on a standard spa hour. (5 min disrobe and get on table, 50 minute massage, 5 minutes to get off the table and dress = 60 minutes)
