Swedish Massage

This is the most common form of massage and can be quite deep and like all therapies is very much client-led. The specific strokes and manipulations of Swedish Massage have definite therapeutic benefits. The aim of this type of massage is to speed the venous return of un-oxygenated blood and toxins from the extremities.

Swedish Massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. Sessions normally finish off with a series of stimulating movements. This massage can be invigorating and shows great results. Recommended for relaxation, tension relief, backache and stiff or aching muscles – a great tonic for all the systems in the body.
