Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion (I always use high quality, organic coconut oil!) with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility. I often incorporate Swedish style strokes into any session, as an introduction from me to you, and as a way to warm the tissues before getting into more specific work.
