The licensed massage therapists at Serenity Massage Center leverage expertise in a variety of massage techniques to personalize each kneading session. Swedish massage uses light or medium pressure to loosen knots and alleviate stress. The smooth, gliding strokes ease muscle tension and promote relaxation, easing overworked muscles and melting tension into a conveniently positioned bucket. As frames slacken, therapists may target especially tense areas with increased pressure. An effective treatment for stress reduction and the improvement of blood circulation, Swedish massage also relieves anxiety, depression, and trauma resulting from having a quarter painfully extracted from an ear by a street magician. Other benefits of massage include increased joint mobility and improved immune-system functioning.
