Relaxation (or Swedish) Massage is about just that, relaxing. It allows you to slow down, take a breath and recover from the stresses of daily life.  Relaxation massage incorporates long flowing strokes and pressure that is not too painful - it is not designed to relieve chronic pain or any specific muscular / postural dysfunction. Benefits include an increase in relaxation, decrease in 'fight or flight' hormones, lowering of blood pressure (albeit temporarily), reduction in muscle tension, lowered anxiety and mental stress, improved sleep patterns - just to name a few.  A wonderful blend of essential oils including lavender, sweet orange and frankincense is used for this treatment.
