Our Swedish Unwind is a perfect blend of the classic “Swedish” massage, known for its lighter touch and broad health benefits, and the more targeted “Deep Tissue” massage, often touted as the ideal treatment for those with chronic pain or those undergoing injury rehabilitation.
The Swedish Unwind treatment is broken up into two parts. We begin with classic Swedish techniques, utilizing the five basic strokes of Swedish massage while applying our unique essential oils and aroma compounds to relax your senses and prime the body for the deeper muscle and tissue penetration that soon follows. The first portion of the Swedish Unwind facilitates increased blood flow and a reduction in cortisol levels, the body’s main stress hormone. Here, we seek to calm your inner energy, which can often become unsettled and disturbed in the media and distraction-filled world we live in today. The first portion of this masasge will carry your mind and senses to an alternate paradise of deep relaxation and comfort.
We then ease into the Deep Tissue portion of the massage, where we apply more focused and sustained pressure to the deeper layers of muscle tissue and fascia. Fascia is a web of connective tissue that wraps around our muscles, bones, nerves, organs, and cells, and can easily become restricted and tight for a variety of reasons, often leading to muscle tension, muscle pain, and limited muscle and joint mobility. The application of sustained pressure through slower and deeper strokes allows us to target the inner layers of muscles and fascia, helping to break up scar tissue that can form and accumulate following injury or intense athletic training. Our Deep Tissue techniques have been known to benefit those experiencing lower back pain, carpal tunnel, and overall joint and tendon pain or stiffness. (Please note that if you are aware of any blood clots or are at risk of forming blood clots, please consult your doctor before experiencing any Deep Tissue techniques.)
While the amount of pressure applied throughout the Swedish Unwind can be customized to your liking, we have found that the smooth transition from the lighter-pressure, Swedish portion into the more intensive, Deep Tissue massage allows for a gradual acclimation to any potential pain or discomfort that can result from Deep Tissue techniques. With the Swedish Unwind, you will notice increased flexibility and mobility as the massage progresses, as the basic strokes and light stretching slowly ease into firmer pressure and myofascial release.
During the Swedish Unwind, our therapists also guide you through diaphragmatic breathing techniques to maximize the benefits of the massage. Diaphragmatic breathing, also known as abdominal or belly breathing, is known for lowering blood pressure, heart rate, and cortisol levels. We have found that our classic and deep tissue movements paired with deep breathing techniques result in a greater sense of calm, and heightened levels of energy and overall mood.
The Swedish Unwind is perfect for those seeking an overall cleanse of mind, body, and spirit. Available in 60 and 75 minute increments.
