Swedish massage: What is it, and why should I care?

The Swedish massage is designed for individuals that want to dive into relaxation, unwind and take a break. The everyday struggle against time disappears and relaxation becomes the only thing that matters. That feeling of peaceful bliss is exactly what The Spa hopes to instill in clients. During a Swedish massage, we want our clients to completely forget about their worries and let their only concern be their pampering.

There are many individual techniques and movements utilized in a Swedish massage. The strokes of the Swedish massage involve kneading, stroking, tapping and vibration and can provide relief from stiffness, numbness, pain, constipation and a multitude of other health problems. Swedish massage is designed to relax muscles, and the strokes are done in the same direction as the flow of blood in the body in order to stimulate circulation.

Swedish massage is especially effective at increasingly bloodflow and therefore oxygen supply to the muscles while removing toxins. Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic acids. Lactic acid, also known as milk acid, is a chemical compound. Uric acid is a waste product that results from natural processes in the body as well as a byproduct of high purine intake.

A Swedish body massage is the perfect way for anyone who is overworked and stressed out to relax their body and mind. Anyone who has been lucky enough to enjoy a Swedish massage can tell you about the beneficial effects as well as the incredible relaxation it provides. While a Swedish massage can work wonders for people who suffer from health conditions, it’s also an amazing way to (albeit temporarily) relieve everyday troubles and concerns. The more that we stress, the more tense our muscles become, and a Swedish massage can be just the thing needed to really relax. Do your body a favor and enjoy a Swedish massage at The Spa!
