Swedish Massage is a gentle to medium pressure massage strokes performed in rhythmic and long flowing nonspecific motions to promote general relaxation and a feeling of overall well being. The therapist generally uses massage oil to facilitate making long, smooth strokes over the body. Swedish massage is done with the person covered by a sheet, a technique called "draping." One part of the body uncovered, massaged, and then covered up before moving on to another part of the body. This firm but gentle pressure is to improve the circulation, ease muscle aches and tension, improve flexibility and create relaxation. Swedish massage employs five different movements: long, gliding strokes, kneading of individual muscles, friction, hacking or tapping vibration.
Swedish massage is the foundation for other types of Western massage, including sports, deep tissue and aromatherapy. $75 - 60 minutes

Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also known as "adhesions.") $100 - 60 minutes
