Swedish Massage

Or Relaxation Massage is by far the most popular of massage modalities A Swedish relaxation massage is intended to make you feel good. This classic full body massage features long, gliding strokes that relax muscles, increase circulation, and leaves you feeling refreshed and pampered.

Purpose of Swedish Massage

The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles.

Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. Swedish massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has many specific medical uses.
