Swedish Massage

Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage therapy. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of Swedish massage techniques 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. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Swedish Massage Techniques

Additional Swedish massage techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching. Before and during your Swedish massage session, communication is encouraged with your professional registered massage therapist so that your massage is customized to your specific needs.
