Swedish Relaxation Massage is a technique of therapy using different strokes to achieve a specific purpose during the massage. A light oil is used with passive and gentle movements or vigorous and firm depending on personal preference. This manipulates the body’s soft tissue which may have a relaxing therapeutic affect. It may also improve health by acting directly on the muscular, nervous, circulatory and lymphatic (immune) systems.
This technique of therapy is also known as Holistic Massage which means that I don’t just ease your aches and pains. I try to understand why you have them and help you make the changes so that the problem may not come back.
With the daily problems of stress, tension and anxiety, a relaxing Swedish Massage may help you.
Many illnesses are related to stress and this type of massage helps to combat this.
This system of Swedish massage was apparently developed in the nineteenth century by the Swedish physical therapist named Pir Henrik Ling. The therapy has been used ever since for relaxation.
