Using a firm but gentle rhythmic pressure, this massage treatment improves circulation, eases muscle aches and tension, improves flexibility and brings about a relaxed state.
Swedish Massage therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the soft tissue and joints of the body. The soft tissues include muscle, skin, tendons and associated fascia, ligaments and joint capsules.
Massage has many diverse physiological effects. The different movements can physically stretch muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia, encourage the circulation through the tissue, inhibit muscular spasms and be either sedating or stimulating to the nervous system. The therapeutic use of massage affects all the systems of the body – in particular, the muscular, circulatory, lymphatic (immune) and nervous systems.
