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.

“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.)
