The most common type of massage therapy in the U.S., Swedish massage can be gentle and relaxing.
Swedish massage from GreatLIFE increases oxygen flow by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Therapists use a variety of techniques to relieve muscle tension, increase oxygen flow and release built-up toxins. Additional techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, tapping, bending and stretching.
Swedish massage therapy goes beyond just relaxation. It is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
