Relax with a Swedish massage
At Coastline Therapy Center we offer Swedish massages for those looking for a relaxing treatment to help with sore muscles. A Swedish massage is designed to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. These massages are commonly known to reduce stress, and are often used to treat and manage anxiety. Swedish massages use a set of traditional techniques to help heal, relax and invigorate your body.
What differentiates a Swedish massage?

- Petrissage: kneading techniques with the hands, thumbs and fingertips.
- Friction: circular pressures with the palms of hands.

This type of massage is appealing because it so relaxing and effective, which means that you can have your sore, muscles treated while feeling calm and relaxed. Swedish massages are shown to shorten recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes.
