Swedish Massage is the most basic treatment style taught as the initiating certification in massage therapy schools nationwide. The primary goal is to relax the body by massaging the muscles with short (petrissage) and long (effleurage) gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
All of our Body Specialists are trained in Swedish Massage and we require that beyond Swedish and Deep Tissue they specialize in eclectic treatment styles. While this style may be your main treatment style, we urge you to consider trying a combination of any of our niche specialties so you have a unique experience with us!
This type of bodywork includes effleurage, kneading, friction, and tapotement (tapping). It is effective for most ailments because massaging the skin, the body's largest organ, sets up a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body. A gentler touch is applied to relax the mind and body reducing stress and stimulating the nervous system.
Our Sweden Flow definitely has therapeutic benefits: 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. It is also stimulating to the skin and nervous system while soothing the nerves. It reduces emotional and physical stress and is suggested regularly for stress management.
Recommended for fibromyalgia patients and over all relaxation. Your choice of lotion or oil.
