Traditional Swedish Massage & Sports Massage

The physical effects of traditional massage are a softening and calming of muscle tissue and increased circulation to remove toxins and bring in nutrients to sore muscles. The result is increased muscle performance. Massage is a combination of trigger point and long gliding, kneading strokes for overall therapeutic value and relaxation. Massage is deeply relaxing of both the mind and body and this alone can be of tremendous help in the healing process.
