What is Swedish Massage?

Swedish massage (also known as therapeutic massage) - a range of techniques applied to the skin using oils, including effleurage (stretching and relaxing superficial muscles), petrissage (kneading and squeezing deeper muscles and tissues), friction and compression (rubbing and 'holding' the tissues to break down scar tissue and relax muscles), tapotement (rhythmical movements and tapping performed with the edge of the hand or heel of the palm to increase blood circulation) and vibration (rhythmical movements for releasing tension and boosting circulation).

What is the 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. Massage helps flush the tissues of harmful deposits such as lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes - improving recovery time from muscular strain.

It also stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable, and stimulates the skin and soothes the nervous system at the same time.

What are the benefits of Swedish Massage?

Swedish massage not only feels exceptionally good, but is relaxing and invigorating. It affects the nerves, muscles, glands, circulation, and promotes general health and wellbeing. As a treatment it helps reduce stress, both emotional and physical, and is often suggested as part of a stress management programme, as well as having many specific medical uses.

It is an incredibly popular massage offering long-lasting stress relief and a fantastic feeling of well being.
