Swedish Full Body Massage
Swedish massage uses slow, long, flowing strokes to massage the body. It is helpful in reducing pain, improving circulation, easing stress & depression, alleviating headaches & many more. It is also great for relaxation. One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by massaging the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage
The aim of deep tissue massage is to release and relieve tension in the muscular and fascial system. The technique works on the deeper layers of muscle and fascia where restriction can affect muscle performance, health and range of movement. Deep tissue massage strokes are applied slowly and deliberately to access any build up of fibrotic tissue, working to reduce scar tissue and realign collagen fibres. As with all massage, the central nervous system is stimulated, promoting relaxation and lengthening of the muscles. It is important to know that DTM is ‘deep’ but not ‘hard’. We are aiming to sink down into the deeper layers ultimately attempting to evoke the relaxation response both physiologically and psychologically. It is unlikely that your treatment will encompass the whole body in this technique, rather concentrate on specific areas of need. Ideally this treatment will last 1 hour and a half.
The best thing about Swedish massage is that its techniques relax the entire body. In this therapy, long gliding strokes are used to massage the muscles in the direction of blood flow to the heart. But, Swedish massage is not limited to relaxation only. In fact, it brings amazing benefits by increasing the oxygen level in the blood. It also improves blood circulation, decreases muscle toxins, and eases tension while bringing flexibility to one’s body.
