Traditional Swedish Massage is considered the foundation of massage techniques. It is a widely used therapeutic style of massage that is an effective treatment for a number of conditions. The various methods are adaptable by adjusting pressure to individual needs.
~Long gliding strokes with even, steady pressure sooth the tense muscles and calm the nervous system.
~Kneading the tissues with deep circular motion improves circulation and promotes healing.
~Compression to the muscles stimulates the para sympathetic nervous system to elicit deep relaxation.
~Gentle rocking and joint range of motion help to improve mobility, lubricate the joints and encourage circulation deep in the tissues.
~Rhythmic percussion motions stimulate the nervous system and awaken inhibited muscles while releasing lymphatic build up.
