With Zen & Now Massage, you will receive a massage that is exceptionally unique and specifically tailored to your needs. Depending on your preference, the function of the massage can vary from relaxing to therapeutic. Soft relaxing music, a warm table and long full body Swedish strokes lull your mind and body into a deep state of relaxation.
The main benefit of a Swedish massage is the relaxation it provides. The strokes used help relax the individual muscles, increases blood flow and quickens the removal of bodily waste. The Swedish massage also targets specific areas of pain and manages chronic pain with conditions such as arthritis. People also tend to experience a decrease in depression and anxiety as well as better self-esteem, enhanced social function, and improved body image.
Therapeutic Massage manipulates the body's soft tissue and muscles to relieve pain and stress, plus it can help with long-term pain management and recovery of injuries. Falling under this category would be your Deep Tissue Massage and Sports Massage.
HOt STone Massage
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands. The heat from the stones can be deeply relaxing and help warm up the tight muscle tissue so the therapist can work more deeply, and quickly. Anj is certified and trained in hot stone massage ensuring that you receive a safe and effective massage.
