Swedish is the western standard in massage therapy – and one of the most popular. Using longstanding and influential techniques, Swedish massage is proven to optimise circulation, release toxins and address tendon, ligament and joint problems. Long, gliding strokes are combined with kneading and various classic pressure applications to relax the entire body. The steady pressure of a Swedish massage has many associated benefits including an increased range of motion, pain relief and long-term tension release. How is it different from other massage? Swedish massage is renowned for both its relaxing and energising effects. Targeting the upper muscle layers, Swedish is aimed at relieving muscle tension across the body – rather than focusing on a specific area. The famous long and kneading strokes are combined with joint movement and a rhythmic, tapping motion to increase blood flow, reduce toxins in the muscle tissue and create a body-wide sense of welling. While other massage therapies target existing injury, regular Swedish massage can help to prevent injury occurring. Regular treatments, in tandem with your exercise regimen, can both minimise the risk of muscle strain and decrease recovery time by flushing lactic acid and metabolic waste from your system. Like all massage treatments, this works best when performed on a regular basis. What are the benefits? Swedish massage is usually chosen for its relaxing properties – but it can have more specific benefits. Athletes or very active people can use Swedish to help them perform at their peak potential, as well as improve their recovery time post exercise. Therapeutically, Swedish can be useful in reducing very high stress levels, anxiety, chronic pain and persistent muscle tension. Additional benefits include improvements in skin health and a general sense of both physical and emotional wellbeing.
