A Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology. A Swedish massage can be very gentle and slow or vigorous and can consist of stretching but will always carry a nice flow. A Swedish massage is great for someone looking to relax and rejuvenate their bodies and/or muscle fatigue as well as the mind.
PRESSURE: light to firm
This is the perfect massage if this is your first massage experience
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
A deep tissue massage is focused on relieving tension in the muscles and connective tissue. A deep tissue massage will consist of very deep pressure on specific muscles that having been causing severe and/ or consistent discomfort and pain. It is not uncommon to experience some muscle pain for a day or two after this very intense session. Because of the nature of this type of massage I do not do full body deep tissue massages on first time clients. Please contact me if you have questions or concerns about this.
SWEDISH/DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE COMBO: This is the most popular of the massage services. This service is designed for those looking to relax and rejuvenate the body and mind as well use some deeper work to focus on relief from some of the intense points of tension or knots. Pressure is light-deep depending on your needs. We can talk more about your specific goals in the massage session.
A chair massage is a fast and effective way to relieve some stress, relax and relieve muscle tension. It can also help support healthy circulation that can give you a natural boost of energy. A chair massage will focus on your arms, back, shoulders, neck and scalp. It will usually consist of Swedish massage techniques but can have some deep tissue techniques if encouraged.
PRESSURE: light to deep

"Bee Well Massage has served as my gold standard for massage ever since my first visit." - BS (Burlington)
“At a time where my life was filled with the footsteps and squeals of a rambunctious toddler, Melissa Brodeur provided an oasis for me. I am lucky enough to have had a table and chair massage from her. Deciding which was better would be like trying to figure out if cookies or brownies were a more delectable treat.” – CF (Nashville, TN.)
