As the best known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish Massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is done so by massaging the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while decreasing tension.

A Hot Stone Massage is used to help melt away tension, ease muscle stiffness and increase circulation; while helping you relax. The smooth, flat, water heated stones promotes deeper muscle relaxtion. The stones are made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat.
The idea behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layer. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
