Swedish massage is designed primarily to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. This massage can relax muscles, increase circulation and shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissue of lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic wastes. It stretches the ligaments and tendons and can help reduce emotional and physical stress.
Prenatal massage is a variety of methods used to reduce stress, decrease swelling, relieve aches and pains, and reduce anxiety and depression, providing physical and emotional support through all stages of pregnancy.
