Swedish full body
Swedish body massage was created by a Swedish physiologist, Per Henrik Ling (1776-1839) and incorporates a range of massage techniques including kneading, effleurage, stroking and wringing to relive muscle tension and ease stress.
Hot and cold stone massage
Combined with classic massage techniques hot volcanic stones and cool marble stones are placed on the body. Switching between cool and hot applications has the added advantage over only using hot stones as it causes blood vessels to alternately dilate and constrict, leading to increased movement of fluids within the body, increased removal of toxins and increased healing. This leads to the overall effect of a reduction in tension with a simultaneous feeling of invigoration.
Alternatively only hot stones can be used if a more relaxing massage is sought. This can be discussed with your therapist.
