Benefits of Massage

I practice traditional Swedish massage which involves a collection of gentle techniques designed to relax muscles, stimulate the skin and nervous system while at the same time reducing emotional and physical stress. It includes gliding strokes, kneading, friction, tapping and shaking motions. It's effective for most ailments because it sets up a chain reaction in the body that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems. 

It relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility and mobility, and helps rid the body of lactic acid and other waste products, reducing pain and stiffness in muscles and joints. It affects nerves, muscles, glands, circulation, and promotes health & well being.
