Swedish massage involves a massage technique with gentle yet firm long gliding strokes in the direction of blood flow. Swedish massage is very beneficial for increasing oxygen levels in the blood and improving the blood circulation, decreasing muscle toxins and easing the muscle tension. Use of the flat of the palm or heel or fingertips is common to deliver pressure to the knots, tight spots and to help loosen and lengthen muscles. The specialty of Swedish massage is that unlike massage styles like Shiatsu or Thai massage that focus on the pressure points, this massage style focuses on enhancing the circulation and blood flow to the large muscle groups.

Swedish massage has been known to provide other benefits such as:
  • Reduction in knee arthritis
  • Easing the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Boosting immune system function
  • Reducing headaches
  • Helping to mitigate the symptoms of fibromyalgia
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Pain relief
  • Fatigue, depression and anxiety relief

Swedish Massage is famous worldwide as a therapeutic massage and for good reason. With Swedish Massage you can achieve overall relaxation. The physical and mental health benefits aside this is also a great option for those new to massage or for someone looking for a wholesome massage experience.
