By elongating the muscles, opening the joints, and decreasing swelling, Swedish massage will ease movement and increase flexibility, improve posture, and improve range of motion.
Designed to remove severe tension, deep tissue massage is a technique used to relieve both muscles and connective tissue below the surface. It helps to improve range of motion and heal injuries below the surface.
Deeper strokes are used to break up scar tissue and break down muscle adhesions and knots. These knots can inhibit our circulation and cause pain and inflammation.

Massages are beneficial for babies as they help improve their blood circulation and aid in their overall development. Massage relieves stress in babies by stimulating the release of oxytocin, a feel-good neurohormone, and decreases the levels of cortisol, a stress hormone.

Studies have also shown that parents that massage their babies also have reduced stress and mothers with post-partum depression have shown improved mood and behavior when they massage their babies regularly.
