Therapeutic Swedish

We consider Swedish massage to be the backbone of all massage. It was developed in the 1700's by a Swedish doctor, and has long been thought of as the first organized method of modern massage therapy in the western world. The specific strokes and manipulations of Swedish massage are each conceived as having definite therapeutic benefits.

The goal of Swedish massage is to speed the return of un-oxygenated blood and toxins from the extremities. Swedish massage shortens recover time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes.

It increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. Swedish Massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system, and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It includes long strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, and shaking motions.

It is effective for most ailments, because massaging the skin, the body’s largest organ, sets up a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body. It affects the nerves, muscles, glands, and circulation, while promoting health and well being.
