What is a Swedish Massage?


Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. its exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.

How It Works?


There are five types of stroke that make up the traditional Swedish massage technique and each has a French name. Effleurage is the main one. The therapist will use their hands, forearms or elbows to rub your muscles in long gliding movements pushing blood in the direction of your heart. An oil or lotion is used to help with movement. There’s also kneading and tapping and your limbs may be bent and stretched a little bit. If that all sounds a bit daunting and continental think of the benefits. Massage is brilliant at combating stress and relaxes the mind and body. It’s not just about getting rid of those knots or for super sporty people. Your circulation and lymph system are boosted and massage helps with chronic pain.
