also known as Swedish massage therapy is the style of massage that comes to mind when most people think about having a massage. As the best-known style of massage performed today, one of the primary goals of this massage technique is to relax the entire body.
This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes with moderate pressure and flowing rhythmic movements in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But this style of therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Relaxation massage helps to reduce stress and fatigue, which promotes a great sense of well being. Aromatherapy oils can also be used to enhance the effects of the massage and promote complete deep relaxation.
Anyone that is experiencing stress, anxiety or insomnia, will feel great pleasure by having a relaxation massage. It is a great way to unwind and relieve mental and physical tension.
