Often considered synonymous with even just the word massage, the Swedish Massage technique is the most common and popular type available. Unlike its more intense opposite, the Deep Tissue Massage, the Swedish Massage uses lighter, more rhythmic strokes with the grain of the muscle to promote blood flow and release.
Though created over two hundred years in 1812 at the University of Stockholm by physiologist Henri Peter Ling, the Swedish Massage still remains a spa staple today, and for good reason. This type of massage can produce enormous results, both mentally and physically.
WHY CHOOSE A SWEDISH MASSAGE?
A great option for those new to the art of massage, the Swedish Massage is always a calming and tranquil experience, which leaves the client relaxed and rejuvenated. Those who enjoy this type can expect the masseuse to use different techniques used within the massage depending on the client’s needs and the location of the massage on the body.
This type of massage is perfect for after a long workout or stressful workweek. You’ll find its benefits extend well past the physical. The soothing touch and rhythm often leaves clients deeply relaxed and free from stress and the chronic fatigue. It’s sometimes the perfect solution to tension headaches, insomnia, chronic back pain, anxiety, depression, exhaustion and so much more.
