SWEDISH MASSAGE – As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body.

Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
