Swedish massage therapy is the most common modality that most people think about. As one of the best known type of bodywork performed, the primary goal of Swedish massage is to help relax the entire body. Your therapist will accomplish this by massaging the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Although, Swedish massage goes beyond just relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial to your well-being by increasing the levels of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving the body’s circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
