Services – Swedish Massage – Relaxation

Swedish Massage is a system of long strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, percussion, vibration and shaking motions that apply pressure between muscles and bones, rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. Swedish Massage feels good, is relaxing and invigorating.

The main purpose of Swedish Massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Some other benefits include shortened recovery time from muscular strain, increased circulation without increased heart load, stretching of ligaments and tendons, skin stimulation and soothing of the nervous system. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested as part of a regular program for stress management.

The strokes and movements of Swedish massage are each conceived as having a specific therapeutic benefit. One of the primary goals of this type of massage is to speed up venous return from the extremities. Swedish Massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissue of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It improves circulation and stretches the ligaments and tendons, keeping them supple and young. Swedish Massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system while at the same time relaxing the nerves themselves. Swedish Massage reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has specific clinical uses in a medical or remedial therapy.
