Swedish massage is one of the most common type of massage in the West. It’s the foundation for other types of massage, including sports massage, deep tissue massage and aromatherapy massage, and is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology, as opposed to energy work on “meridians” or sen lines in Asian massage systems.
If it’s your first time you are getting a massage, Swedish massage is a great place topeople get a 50 or 60-minute Swedish or deep tissue massage, but 75 or 90-minutes gives the therapist more time to work the muscle tissue and achieve results. You can alternatively try our Turkish Bath first then get a massage for maximum results.
If you want deeper work and can tolerate more pressure to get relief from chronic muscle pain, it’s better to book a deep tissue massage, which is another form of Swedish massage. If you have pain, it will likely take a series of massages to get results. Swedish massage and other types of therapeutic massage are performed by our experienced, trained, licensed massage therapists.
If you’re interested in having healthy skin and have looked into various skin care options, you’ve probably come across the term “European facial” and may have wondered just what it is. A European facial (often called a classic facial in Europe) is a thorough, deep cleansing treatment for the face and neck.
It is basic, uncomplicated, and meant to improve the look, feel, and health of the skin. Though it is generally referred to as an “introductory” facial, it should continue as part of your ongoing skin care routine. It is a monthly routine for women abroad and considered the quintessential treatment in good skin care.
The European facial begins with cleansing to remove makeup and impurities. This is followed by an exfoliation process that removes dead skin cells and generates skin cell turnover. Next, the pores are deeply cleaned with steam that is gently blown over the face.
The steam may also be applied to the skin with warm towels. An extraction process for a deeper cleaning is the next step and is optional (this can be uncomfortable to some and may leave some redness for a few hours). To further the client’s relaxation, a face, neck, and shoulder massage comes next. After the massage, a mask is applied appropriate to the skin type and condition, and finally, a moisturizer with sunblock is applied. The European facial will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to greet the world with a healthy, glowing complexion.
Some of the benefits of a European facial are:
• unclogs the pores and removes impurities;
• detoxifies the skin for better circulation of blood to the face and adjoining areas;
• relaxes tension in the face and reduces the onset of headaches ;
• stimulates cellular renewal;
• hydrates the skin for a rejuvenated, youthful look to your face.
