Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think abouta a massage. 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 accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. It is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Thai Massage involves application of deep, rhythmic pressure along the body’s ‘Sen’ lines. These lines are comparable to energetic meridians or channels, allowing me to access the body’s energy and promote both healing and relaxation. Thai Massage is a little different to Western massage styles, as you will remain clothed while lying on a firm mattress, and no oils are used. You may be positioned in Yoga-like postures during massage, and the pressure and rhythm will be adjusted to suit you. Please come with clean feet and wear loose, comfortable clothing- preferably cotton. Session is 90 minutes.
