One of the primary goals of Swedish Massage is to relax the entire body by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Our therapist lubricates the skin with massage oil or lotion and performs the massage strokes, which warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually breaking up muscle "knots" or adhered tissues, called adhesions.
Swedish Massage is know best for its ability to reduce pain, increase blood flow, rehabilitate injured muscles, increase flexibility, reduce stress, and improved the immune system. Swedish Massage may also help regulate serotonin levels to reduce pain in people with fibromyalgia.
How often should you get Swedish Massage?
This depends on the client and consultation. We recommend full body Swedish Massage once a week for the first six weeks then one once every two weeks or once a month.
