When most of our Manhattan clients request a massage, it is a Swedish massage they are looking for. This is the best-known type of bodywork performed in New York and across the country. The primary goal is to relax the entire body by applying pressure in long, slow strokes across the muscles. This is done by gliding pressure in the direction of the heart. From relaxation to increased blood oxygen levels, Swedish massage is wonderful for everything from flexibility to decreasing muscle toxins.
Studies have shown that just a 45-minute Swedish massage can lower our levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, in our bodies. Similarly, this massage can increase your number of white blood cells, which boost your immunity to colds and other illnesses.
Swedish massage is characterized by its massage techniques that include circular pressure applied by the palms and hands, kneading, and percussive tapping on the body. Be sure to tell us about any health concerns you may have before the massage begins, as well as any sensitive or sore spots you may have on your body. We want to work with you to make your massage experience as enjoyable as possible.
