Absolutely loved my session!!! Cannot wait to come back!! I was so relaxed, I fell asleep! Excellent massage and the atmosphere is warm, welcoming, and oh so calm..
Travel Genie Ken had the pleasure of visiting this spa and left feeling relaxed and ready to face the remainder of my day. The foot softening treatment was an added benefit and the aroma therapy was just what I needed. The heated massage bed was a plus and the skilled hands, great music and wonderful staff makes me want to return frequently and bring others..
I felt so refreshed and rejuvenated I highly recommend Massage Supreme Spa to everyone, especially if you are looking for a nice deep, relaxing massage and great customer service. I definitely plan to return. Segie spent just the right amount of time on my most problematic area and made sure to also work in the rest of the body which is important for overall relief.
Wow, I had a wonderful experience at Massage Supreme. When I arrived, I was greeted with the uttermost respect. They were very hospitable. The atmosphere was so serene. Nice and clean, but most of all, I felt refreshed and rejuvenated. I highly recommend others to come and experience a day at this spa. Darren.
Swedish Massage Therapy
The term "Swedish Massage" refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction
as the flow of blood returning to the heart. This form of massage was created at the turn of the century by Henry Peter Ling in Sweden. It involves the use of kneading, stroking, friction, tapping,
and vibration and may provide relief from stiffness, numbness, pain, constipation, and other health problems. The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and
release toxins from the muscles. Other possible benefits include stimulation of circulation, an increase in muscle tone, and a balance of the musculo-skeletal systems. 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 heart load.
The usual sequence in which a swedish massage strokes are conducted are Effleurage, Petrissage, Friction, Vibration, Percussion, and finally passive and active movements (bending and stretching).
1. Effleurage consists of long, gliding, sweeping strokes administered with hands (both open palm and fists) and forearms. These strokes are smoothing strokes used for spreading lotion or oil on the body and to help the therapist evaluate muscle tension. As the pressure of the strokes increase, they provide a stretch to the muscles, thus allowing the client to relax.
2. Petrissage is typified by kneading,rolling, wringing and lifting strokes, which help free up knotted and bound muscles and soft tissue, stimulate nerve endings, and aid in increasing circulation, that in turn promotes cell repair and regeneration.
3. Friction is a warming stroke designed to both quickly generate heat, in preparation for deeper work, and as a way to effectively drive the therapeutic, healing properties of plant-based essential oils into the body. This stroke can be done by rubbing back and forth along the length of the muscle or across it by either using wringing motion or small circular movements.
4. Tapotement is characterized as a percussion stroke in which the hand action rhythmically stimulates nerves, muscles, and circulation. The hand position can be cupped or with palms flat, or it can be with fingers interlocked in either a palms together position or in soft fists.Used in chair massage and Shiatsu as well as Swedish massage, Tapotement strokes often signal the end of the previous stroke sequence and prepare the client to change from being positioned face down on the massage tableto being face up.
5. Vibration refers to rocking, shaking and trembling movements applied to one limb or to the entire body. These movements, which can be done slowly or rapidly, are designed to reverberate through the surrounding tissues in order to break postural holding patterns and to facilitate a momentary release of tension in the muscle being worked on.
