What is it?
Swedish Massage therapy is what comes to mind when most people think about massage. It is simply the most well-known, and most common type of bodywork performed today. The primary goal of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body, but Swedish massage therapy can go beyond relaxation to provide a myriad of results from relaxation to invigoration.
How is it performed?
Long sweeping strokes; Friction induced heat as well as varying the level of pressure, are a few of the techniques alternated between to break down tension in the muscles. After that, the therapist will knead the muscles to penetrate deeper to loosen and relax the muscles being manipulated and also help to energise them. The pressure will vary from light to firm (dependent on movement and taste) but NEVER painful.
What are the benefits?
It's been proven that a 45 minute Swedish Massage is exceptionally helpful at decreasing harmful muscle toxins. Some other benefits include; lowering the levels of stress hormones; Increasing the level of oxygen in the blood and helping the body to increase the number as white blood cells.
