Swedish Relaxation Massage
Uses long gliding strokes, rhythmic kneading, and compression of muscles and soft tissue to induce deep relaxation. In addition to feeling soothing and wonderful as you receive it, relaxation supports every system of the body to function more optimally.
May include slow penetrating pressure, trigger point release, and therapeutic stretching to affect the deeper layers of muscle and fascia. This work can encourage the body to change tight, uncomfortable, or painful patterns, whether chronic or resulting from a trauma or injury.
Swedish Relaxation and Deep Massage

It is deeply relaxing and excellent for anyone who is suffering from the effects of an impact or trauma.
Is an ancient practice from Japan that uses stretching and focused pressure from the hands to promote even flow of chi (energy) in the meridians (energy channels). Traditionally done clothed, on a mat on the floor, shiatsu can also be performed on a table, and incorporated into a massage.
