The Swedish massage is my signature massage. If your day has been normally active as in the office, for example, gaming tables, driving, or touring, I'm sure you get the picture, then a Swedish Massage is your "Ticket" at the end of the day. "You'll be amazed at what it will do to your sleep and "bounce" the next day." The Swedish massage is my favorite massage, because it include all the massage techniques, using the best of oils. I apply long strokes, long enough so as to cover the whole body, from the head to toe. At the same time, however, I use my fingers to rub your back, while I knead, squeeze, and shake it. Swedish massage is a very soft and relaxing massage when compared with the Deep Tissue, or the Japanese Acupressure massage. The Swedish massage is much like music coming from the heart that pours out through the hands to the entire body. At the end of a Swedish massage the senses wake and the day blossoms as never before.
Most of us experience stress in varying levels on a day-to-day basis. Stress is not good for the health because it makes our muscles tense and bunch up, causing pain. Also, it makes the organs of our body function under duress. That is never good. Massage is meant to alleviate pain and enhance the body's health. A Swedish massage is considered to be among the most basic methods of massage therapy and is among the first styles of massage that a new masseur or a new masseuse get to study. Developed by Henrik Ling in Sweden in the 1700s, Swedish massage is particularly geared to allow the body to absorb more oxygen, thereby rejuvenating the body. As a direct consequence, since the amount of oxygen absorbed by the body is a major eterminant of the speed with which toxins are eliminated from the body, Swedish massage is also geared towards detoxification, since it increases oxygen absorption. But more than these, Swedish massage brings to the receiver an immense feeling of well-being and relaxation.
There are six techniques used in administering Swedish massage, Effleurage, Friction, Petrissage, Tapottement, Traction, and Vibration. Definitions for the preceding terms may be found by clicking their respective links, found below.
