Once a luxury, now part of a healthy lifestyle.

Types of Massage


Swedish is the type of treatment most people think about when they want a massage. The therapist uses a variety of strokes and techniques to manipulate the soft tissue of the body. These techniques have a positive effect on the nerves, muscles, glands and circulatory system. The intent of Swedish massage is to enhance health and healing. During a Swedish session the client is comfortably draped and only the area of the body being worked on is exposed. Swedish Massage should be part of everyone’s health program.


Shiatsu was developed in Japan, and is based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine. During a Shiatsu session, the client is fully clothed and positioned on a mat or low table. The therapist applies pressure with fingers, thumbs, palms or knees along meridians that follow specific patterns throughout the body. This treatment stimulates lymph and blood flow, while promoting relaxation. If you haven’t tried Shiatsu, call today for your first session.
