Massage therapy eases stress. It is thought to help the body’s stress feedback by reducing levels of hormones such as cortisol. Massage treatment likewise appears to enhance immune function.
Swedish massage is the style that comes to mind when most people think about massage. It was developed in Stockholm a couple of centuries ago and is the most common and best-known type form of bodywork performed today. The goal is relaxing the entire body and this is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Additional techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching. Lotion is often used to reduce friction and stimulate the skin. Swedish massage is exceptional for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Deep tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage but is used to target knots and release chronic muscle tension. Other benefits include reducing inflammation and helping to eliminate scar tissue. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). Deep tissue massage uses strokes across the grain of the muscles, not with the grain as in Swedish massage.
Massage during pregnancy offers undeniable physical benefits. Our professional massage therapists will work to stimulate your lymphatic system, increasing immunity and the removal of excess toxins, while also stabilizing hormonal levels and balancing the glandular system. Hormonal changes can cause depression and anxiety during pregnancy, which is why many expecting mothers can find relief at EDEN Spa.

A hot stone massage is a specific type of massage therapy used to help you relax and ease tense muscles and damaged tissues throughout the body. During a hot stone massage, smooth, flat, heated stones are placed on specific parts of your body. The stones are usually made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat. Anyone who is experiencing muscle tension and pain, insomnia, or stress may benefit from a hot stone massage. The treatment is a helpful way to reduce stress and anxiety, promote relaxation, and ease muscle pain and tension.
This massage experience is unlike most massage treatments. You are not required to undress. Loose fitting clothing is preferred. By identifying physical limitations, this treatment is able to develop ways to overcome aches, pains, and restrictions of mobility. One hour to two hour sessions are available to choose from. The session addresses those areas that are being hampered by debilitating pain or restrictive movement. We are able to customize a plan and solution that is virtually pain free with additional range of motion for a more active and happy lifestyle.
