Relaxation Massage

Relaxation MassageRelaxation Massage

Relaxation Massage is also known as Swedish massage. The Swedish massage technique was developed by a Swedish physiologist, Henri Peter Ling, while working at the University of Stockholm in 1812. It is the type of massage that is commonly offered and is the best known of the various massage types.

Using firm but gentle A Photo of Ginger Performing Swedish Massage on a Clientpressure, its goal is to improve circulation, alleviate muscle aches and tension, aid the improvement of flexibility and develop a relaxed sensation for the client.

Five different movements are used during Swedish massage:

  •    Effleurage: long, gliding strokes
  •    Pettrisage: kneading of the individual muscles
  •    Friction
  •    Tapotement: hacking or tapping
  •    Vibration

During the session, the therapist usually applies massage oil to aid in making long, smooth strokes over the body. The massage is done with the person draped by a sheet, one part of the body uncovered at a time, massaged, and then covered again before massaging the next part of the body. This helps keep the person warm and enhances the feeling of relaxation.

Swedish massage is the basis for other types of Western massage. I integrate other massage, such as Cupping.

Aroma Therapy

Aroma Therapy is an extra and fascinating dimension that can be added to assist in your relaxation experience; "Lavender" aromatherapy is used at your request.


The theory behind Reflexology is that a "map" on the hands or feet relate to various other parts of the body. By working these points (which are often tender when there is an acute or chronic symptom), healing takes place on the 'reflected' area of the body. Again, this is not a major component of my repertoire, but if you want this method, I can provide it to you.



 "I have been fortunate to be associated with Ginger over the past ten years and through three surgeries-her expertise in massage and cupping enhanced my recovery and was a excellent complementary therapy to my re-hab.  As an active,angling athlete she helps me to keep moving and to stay healthy and moving freely-couldn't do life without her help!"
