Body, massage & relaxation
The health benefits of massage therapy given by a qualified masseuse, offers relief from stress and muscle strain. When the superficial and deeper muscle layers and connective tissues are massaged, blood is expelled from the area. When pressure is removed, fresh, newly oxygenated blood and nutrients flow into the muscle and tissues, thus improving its tone and mobility.
Massaging aids in the healing process and promote relaxation and well-being. Muscle tension, stiffness and pain are lessened by slow, rhythmic movements and techniques, while friction and pressure improves circulation and assist in eliminating toxins.
At Tsedeq™, you can choose from a wide range of quality aromatherapy oils, naturally extracted from herbs, flowers and fruits to enhance the benefits of your massage or allow us to blend a special massage oil according to your specific need.
You have the option to choose whether you want the massage to be relatively gentle or done with more intensive pressure. Don’t be afraid to ask your therapist to lessen or increase the pressure applied, in accordance with your own tolerance and level of comfort.

Types of massages we offer
Deep tissue massage: Deep tissue massage is a specific type of massage that works on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body.
This technique involves using firmer pressure to reach these key areas and get them to release, which is why this particular massage is often recommended for people who are comfortable with a slightly more intense touch.
However, deep tissue massage can also refer to gentle yet sustained pressure targeting the myofascial layer.
Swedish massage: Swedish massage is synonymous with massage itself and has been around for a very long time. Today it is the most well known and popular type of massage therapy. In Europe it is called the “Classic Massage”. One of the major benefits of Swedish massagetherapy is true relaxation. For busy professionals who have long weekdays ahead of them, a great Swedish massage can loosen up tensed back muscles and an aching neck and shoulders. Complete relaxation follows suit! After an hour of this kind of rejuvenating massage therapy, you can’t help but notice the way your body’s movements improve. The increased full range of motion of your neck, shoulders, back, hands, arms and legs and decreased swelling are all significant benefits of the Swedish massage experience.
