Introduced in the west by Per Heinrik Ling, in the early 1800’s, Swedish massage is meant primarily for relaxation purposes. It incorporates light to moderate, long continuous strokes, with some kneading of major muscle groups to soothe the body as a whole. Swedish massage pressure is also coupled with Myofascial Release methods to help with chronic pain and discomfort.
Fascia is a connective tissue which spreads throughout the body in a three-dimensional web from head to foot, without interruption. Trauma, posture or inflammation can create a binding down of fascia resulting in excessive pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, osseous (consisting of or turned into bone) structures, and/or organs.
Myofascial Release may also be incorporated to release facial restrictions. This gentle application of sustained pressure into the fascial restrictions slowly allows the fascia to elongate.
Myofascial release can help treat:
- Back/Cervical Spasms
- Sports Injuries
- TMJ (Trans-mandibular Joint) Pain
Wonderful experience! Relaxing, peaceful, & nurturing for both the body & soul! Roz M.
Attention stressed & overworked business owners, take a moment to schedule a massage with Sherry, so that you can have a focused & productive work day. I called Sherry recently because my shoulders were almost to my ears with tension; I actually caught myself spending too much work time rubbing my shoulders instead of pounding away at the keyboard. Sherry totally solved the problem. I told her where the pain was, & it just seemed to melt away after her relaxing Swedish massage. I left for the second half of my day with shoulders down & chin up – wow – what a difference! I highly recommend Sherry to anyone who needs to relax & focus. Don’t just keep her to yourself, either!

SO RELAXING! The best massage you will ever have. And I’ve had many! I started using Sherry for my pre-natal care and I fell asleep every time. I’m still blown away by her expertise and professional touch. She knows your pressure points and has great instinct. And so convenient & affordable! Thanks Sherry and see you soon FOR SURE. Laura H.
