“Anyone wishing to study medicine must master the art of massage.”– Hippocrates
Swedish massage stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves. It reduces emotional and physical stress and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has many specific medical uses. Injuries and muscular strain have a shorter healing time because the massage causes lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic waste to be flushed from the body. This classic massage style is specifically designed to relax muscles using long strokes to relive muscle tension and improve circulation. It uses a firm but gentle pressure to improve the circulation, ease muscle aches and tension, improve flexibility and create relaxation.
