Anthea is Astoria’s intimate place for a rejuvenating massage

Massage therapies offered at Anthea are based on ancient practices that help reduce mental stress and physical strain. We offer a variety of different techniques and styles of massage, including but not limited to Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Thai Massage and Raindrop Technique.

Swedish & Deep tissue massage

Swedish massage is the most common massage therapy and what comes to mind when people think of a massage. The primary goal of the Swedish massage is to relax the entire body, by targeting the muscles using long strokes in the direction of blood flow to the heart.

Deep tissue massage is very similar to the Swedish massage, except it involves applying pressure to the deepest layers of the muscle providing optimal relief against chronic muscle tension.

Thai Yoga massage

We are very proud to be one of the few studios in Astoria, Longs Island City and Sunshine to offer Thai Yoga Massage. The massage is performed on a mat on the floor with both the practitioner and the recipient dressed in comfortable clothing that allows ease of movement and flexibility. The practitioner guides the recipient through a series of yoga postures while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy lines and pressure points, resulting in a full body treatment that releases muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system, and balances the body energetically.
