Swedish massage is characterized by light- to medium-pressure strokes with an emphasis on the therapist's hands "flowing" over the body, increasing circulation, and creating a sedating experience to maximize relaxation.
Deep Tissue Massage is a frequently requested favorite. Slow firm strokes, and strong finger, forearm, or elbow pressure release the chronic patterns of contraction in the body. Knots and bands of tissue melt away. Great for those with persistent tension or pain.
At Cromwell Massage & Wellness, we are perhaps best known for our work with athletes, both adult, and our incredible local teen athletes! In a sports massage, or athletic massage session, the needs of the athlete are carefully discussed and then addressed. This could be injury, rehabilitation, event preparation, event warm-down work (for example, after a marathon), a regular regimen to help keep tension down in order to get more workouts in, or simply a wellness regimen (such as the one Olympian Michael Phelps keeps) to maintain a high level of performance. Whether it's an old, nagging injury you'd like to address, or you would like to keep injury at bay, let our therapists use what they know about the body, and healing, to help you reach your performance goals with massage.

Cromwell area moms are some of our favorite clients!

If you or someone you love is currently expecting, massage provides the gift of comfort in a potentially uncomfortable time, allowing the true beauty of what's happening to be better enjoyed! (Remember that after the child is born, the benefits here are great, as well!)
