Body-Centered Therapies

Swedish Massage
In this, the most common form of massage therapy in the United States, a massage therapist manipulates your body's soft tissue, focusing on the muscles, ligaments and tendons. He or she uses soothing strokes to reduce muscular tension, enhance relaxation and improve flexibility. As with all types of massage, it is important to find a practitioner who is a licensed massage therapist.
