Swedish Therapeutic Massage

Everyone knows that massage feels great. Did you know that it also promotes good health for both mind and body? Massage releives fatique, reduces anxiety, and calms the nervous system. It promotes relaxation, renewed energy, and overall sense of well being. It also increases the body's metabolism, hastens healing, reduces tension, tones muscles, and improves the detoxifying functions of the lymphatic system. Massage also effects the quality and quantity of blood circulation. Your skin, the largest organ in your body, is nourished through increased blood circulation and the application of moisturizers.

The goal is relaxing the entire body and this is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.  Additional techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching.  Lotion is often used to reduce friction and stimulate the skin.

Swedish massage is exceptional for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
