Swedish or Deep Tissue
There are many different types of massage available. Primarily in use at Serenity are Swedish and Deep Tissue.
Swedish Massage is used to promote relaxation by using slow, long, circular strokes with light to medium pressure. Swedish massage increases blood circulation and moves metabolic waste out of the body. This helps relieve pain, improve mood, decrease nervous tension, improve sleep, and promote clear thinking. If you are looking for overall relaxation and stress relief, Swedish massage is the one for you.
Deep Tissue Massage is used to relieve specific stressed muscles. Deep tissue is popular with athletes maintaining prolonged, hard workouts. Additionally, Deep Tissue is a great therapy for chronic pain, such as tension headaches and back pain.
