Swedish Massage is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension. If it’s your first time getting a massage or you don’t get massages often, Dennis recommends Swedish Massage as your best place to start.
Swedish Massage is more commonly slow and gentle, but can be vigorous and bracing –depending on the patients’ needs. Swedish massage techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching. Before and during your Swedish massage session, communication is encouraged with the RMT so that your massage is customized to your specific needs.
Swedish Massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function and mobility of different areas of the body.
