Swedish Massage was originally developed in Stockholm a couple of centuries ago and is the most common and best-known type of bodywork performed today.
The goal is to relax the entire body, to feel more connected, and to reduce physical and emotional stress. This is accomplished through a soothing style of massage that creates a sense of relaxation and renewed energy. The techniques incorporate rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart, circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, and stretching.
Swedish massage is exceptional for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension and boosting the immune system.
