Massage Techniques Available
One of the most commonly taught and well-known massage techniques, Swedish massage is a vigorous system of treatment designed to energize the body by stimulating circulation. Five basic strokes, all flowing toward the heart, are used to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. The disrobed client is covered by a sheet, with only the area being worked on exposed. Therapists use a combination of kneading, rolling, vibrational, percussive and tapping movements, with the application of oil, to reduce friction on the skin. The many benefits of Swedish massage may include generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions and improved circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury.
Esalen massage is a slow, flowing stroke-massage that opens the sense of ease in the client. Combined with deeper tissue strokes to release tension, Esalen massage also employs passive joint movements to enable the sense of body space. Esalen massage plays a supportive role in the body's natural ability to heal and assists in overall wellbeing

I work with vitamin-e lotion on massage table in a quiet low candle lit room with your choice of classical or new age music. I am trained and very skilled in several bodywork and massage modalities, however, Swedish and Esalen are my preferred techniques, release is never an issue; It is your choice.
A shower and fresh towels are available after bodywork session.
