The term “Swedish Massage” refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.
Swedish massage is used to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles.
Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable.
Swedish massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has many specific medical uses.

"We had the couples massage on our last day in Oahu and I couldn't imagine a better way to end our trip. Siam Thai got us in last minute for a Thai/Swedish combo massage and our therapists were Triya and Nid. I get massages monthly back home and have tried several therapists. I was a little skeptical about this place because of the parking situation and location, but that won't matter the second they lay their hands on you as it is easily one of the best massages I have had in my life, including those at fancy spas and resorts.The Thai portion of the massage was incredible and the amount of pressure used was great, it was like she was reading my mind for when to apply more or less pressure. Nid worked on my husband who has been suffering from a knot in his back for awhile and she was able to work it loose. We will definitely be repeat customers when we go back to Oahu."
