Relaxation massage is aimed at calming the body and mind.
Also called Swedish Massage, this style of massage is one of the most popular styles in the United States and incorporates a variety of techniques aimed at reducing muscular tension, calming the mind and soothing the nervous system. Its benefits often extend much beyond the length of the session.
The techniques of the Swedish style include long, smooth gliding strokes which link together to create a sense of flow. During a Relaxation Massage, Alison brings in other techniques in such as light trigger point work, myofascial release, and passive stretching techniques so that each client gets the most out of his or her experience.
All first appointments include a complimentary 30-minute assessment. This time allows Alison to get to know you and your goals for the session. For relaxing massages, 30 minute allows plenty of time to gather information about your massage preferences, history with massage, and any special requests you may have in order to create a session that is tailored to each your unique needs. Before the session, Alison will always take time to answer any questions you have.
