Utilizing the gliding, kneading, friction, and compression strokes that characterize Swedish massage, Chelsey relaxes tension in the body and reduces physical and emotional stress. Relaxation massage is generally a whole-body experience, unless otherwise requested.

Massage has been shown to:

  • Increase blood circulation
  • Improve immune-system function
  • Reduce muskuloskeletal pain/discomfort/tension
  • Improve posture
  • Decrease stress hormones
  • Increase parasympathetic state and happy hormones (seratonin, oxytocin)
  • Improve gastrointestinal activity/digestion
  • Decrease depression
  • Improve quality of sleep
  • Encourage general health awareness

*Chelsey offers massage in-office in Kirkland as well as provides home-visits to families in the greater Seattle area, Eastside, and South Snohomish county.
