Sometimes, we need a serious dose of relaxation. One instrument that will bring waves of calm into your body is a Swedish massage—the most popular massage modality out of the 200 known massage techniques.
Swedish massages are distinct because of their ability to promote mental and physical relaxation while decreasing muscle tension and soreness. This massage breed began in Sweden but was refined in the United States, where anatomy and physiology were put into action and entwined into the foundation of the massage classification.

A Swedish massage uses five styles of strokes, still referred to by their French names—effleurage, petrissage, friction, tapotement, and vibration. The combination of kneading, rubbing, percussion, and shaking motions performed by our massage therapists helps to increase circulation and flexibility while melting away physical and emotional stressors. Swedish massages will increase nutrient supplies to muscles and increases melatonin levels in your body, improving sleep while giving you more energy to charge through your day.
Swedish massages have proved to be immunity boosters as well. Studies have shown that Swedish massages have led to significant decreases in arginine vasopressin, a hormone that increases cortisol levels in the body. The modality decreases levels of cortisol itself, which is referred to as the “stress hormone” and can lead to an increase in your heart rate and blood pressure. A Swedish massage also aids in lymphatic production of white blood cells, which can protect your body from harmful diseases.
A Swedish massage will release a surge of happy chemicals through your body, allowing you to unwind, relax, and release life’s tensions. Our massage therapists employ the use of warm essential oils and lotions to reduce friction and add the benefit of soothing aromatherapy to your massage. You deserve a break—feel elongated, rejuvenated, and relaxed with our deeply calming Swedish massage.
