Swedish massage uses a system of long gliding strokes, kneading and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of muscles. It usually goes in the direction of blood flow toward the heart because there is an emphasis on stimulating the circulation of the blood through the soft tissues of the body.

Oil is usually used, first warmed in the therapist's hands, which facilitates the stroking and kneading of the body, thereby stimulating metabolism and circulation. Its active and passive movements of the joints promote general relaxation, improve circulation and relieve muscle tension.

Benefits of Swedish Massage:

*relax muscles
*relieve pain and discomfort associated with muscle tension, fractures, sprains, sciatica, and stiff joints
*shorten recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissue of lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic wastes
*stretch the ligaments and tendons, keeping them supple
*stimulates the skin and nervous system while at the same time relaxing the nerves themselves
*help reduce emotional and physical stress.
