Swedish massage is a whole-body therapeutic massage treatment that works the soft tissues and muscles to help restore health - creating a calming and balancing effect on the nervous system.
Five main types of massage techniques in a Swedish massage: stroking and gliding; kneading; rubbing; tapping or pounding; vibration.
The various Swedish massage techniques, created by the Father of Swedish Massage, Per Henrik Ling, are designed to improve your circulation, soothe your muscles and make you feel more relaxed.
Swedish massage therapy uses softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage. This adjustment of pressure makes it an ideal massage for relaxation.
Best known for soothing tight muscles and boosting well-being, Swedish massage also offers a whole host of other health benefits, including:
Easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins.
Improving blood circulation and blow flow throughout the body helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple.
Improving range of motion
Reducing emotional and physical stress.
Easing back pain and chronic pain.
Swedish massage is traditionally performed with the client wearing minimal clothing, so whatever clothing you feel comfortable to attend in is fine, towels are used in such a ways as to protect your modesty.
