Encompassing Swedish, Deep Tissue and Focused Massage sessions, Therapeutic Massage provides many benefits and can be tailored to the goal of each individual session. Our three categories of therapeutic massage are aligned with different goals and also take into consideration each client’s personal preferences.
Swedish Massage: Meant for overall relaxation and stress relief. This massage can be done with light, medium or firm pressure.
Deep Tissue Massage: Intended to affect deeper layers of tissue with the use of additional pressure applied in a slow and intentional manner.
Focused Massage: For the person with some “problem areas” to be worked out, but who does not necessarily need Medical Massage.
