Swedish massage has been proven to increases oxygen levels in your blood, improve your circulation and flexibility and reduces muscle toxins. It also helps to relax and repair any overworked or injured muscles. Swedish massage is also known to stimulate the body's lymphatic system, riding your body of toxins and strengthening your immune system.

How it works

The pressure varies between light to medium to firm and your massage therapist will adjust the pressure according to your preference. If it's your first time getting a massage this is a perfect choice. Your skin will be massaged with oils and lotions to warm your muscles, release your tensions and break up any tender muscular “knots”.
