Swedish massage is the manipulation of soft body tissues and muscles for therapeutic purposes. It can help promote the circulation, relax muscles, relieve pain, restore metabolic balance and give a general sense of wellbeing and relaxation.
Swedish massage is the 'traditional' type of massage with a focus on long gliding strokes, kneading, tapping and deep circular movements. The pressure is deeper over the muscles and lighter over bony areas which makes it ideal for relaxation.
But Swedish massage therapy is more than simple relaxation. It's exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins and reducing muscle strain, improving circulation and the supply of nutrients to the body's tissues and increasing flexibility. It can also reduce the levels of stress hormones in the body, boost the immune system and help relieve specific health problems.
