Purpose of Swedish massage
The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing the heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. Swedish massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has many specific medical benefits.
This treatment is relaxing and invigorating as it affects the nerves, muscles, glands, and circulation while promoting health and well being.
Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses plan extracts, known as Essential Oils and other Aromatic compounds for the purpose of altering a person’s mind, mood, cognitive function and health.

This is a specialized treatment designed to remove surface dead skin cells, improve the texture of the skin, and refine areas of scar tissue and fine lines. This is achieved by using crystals to sandblast the skin and removing them by means of a vacuum. It is an ideal treatment for acne scarring, congestion, large open pores, sun damaged skin, uneven pigmentation and fine lines. It is a quick procedure lasting for 20 – 30 minutes or an hour if it is combined with other treatments such as masks or massage. Treatments are recommended every two weeks as part of a course of six to eight treatments. More recently a special resurfacing treatment has become available using diamond tipped wands instead of crystals to exfoliate the skin and a vacuum to remove the skin cells. Microdermabrasion also stimulates the elastin and collagen in the skin making it healthier and firmer in appearance.
