Swedish massage is a massage that has a number of purposes but its primary one is to simply relax the whole body. It is the best-known type of massage performed today and involves rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of the blood flow returning to the heart.
Swedish massage is also exceptionally beneficial for the following –
- Increasing oxygen in the blood
- Decreasing muscle toxins
- Improving circulation
- Improving flexibility
- Easing tensions
- Easing common colds and congestion
Swedish massage techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, kneading, stroking and gliding, tapping or pounding and stretching.
As with all treatments, inform Lynne of any medical conditions you may have and avoid heavy meals and alcohol in the hours leading up to your massage. Lynne will also encourage you to drink plenty of water post-massage to help your body get rid of the toxins released through the massage process.
