When talking about massage therapy, most people commonly think of Swedish. It is in fact one of the most popular modalities practiced today, because it is intended to relax the entire body.

The Swedish modality uses a series of specific techniques to create a relaxing and beneficial experience.

– Long, gliding strokes on muscles to improve circulation and help break up trigger points
– Gentle kneading of muscles in problem areas
– Palm friction rubbing to stimulate warmth in a muscle group
– Using fingertips to loosen stiff muscle

It is an effective and gentle therapy for stress and pain management.

Benefits of Swedish Therapy

During your session your massage therapist will focus on muscle relaxation by targeting superficial muscles closest to the skin,
and improving your blood circulation.
Of course, we will customize your experience to suit your health and wellness needs.
Please inform your therapist of any pre-existing medical conditions or areas of immediate concern.

Generally speaking the benefits of Swedish Massage Therapy include:

1. Stress Management
By relaxing the body you are in turn able to better relax the mind. Recent studies have shown that Swedish Massage can help with symptoms of anxiety and depression, relieve tension headaches, while also improving your quality of sleep.

2. Improved Circulation:
The long soothing strokes on the muscles are done in the direction of the heart to imitate the natural flow of circulation in your body. This helps to open up your blood vessels allowing for an increase of nutrients and oxygen to reach your muscles, while more effectively removing toxins from the body.

3. Pain Management
Pain relief is at the core of Swedish Massage. The improved circulation and muscle relaxation will help soothe the pain from an injury, or make living with a chronic pain condition more bearable.

4. Immune System Boost:
When you relax the body and mind this decreases the production of cortisol allowing your immune system to grow stronger. Reducing your chances of getting sick, so you can focus on doing all the things you love!
