Swedish Massage is bodywork that is specifically designed to relax muscles. Interestingly, it was originally derived from the oldest known form of massage which is Chinese Tui Na.
By applying deep pressure to muscles and bones, by rubbing concurrently with the circulation towards the heart, Swedish massage purposefully enhances oxygen flow in blood and helps to rid toxins from the muscles.
Shortening recovery time from injuries like muscle sprains, Swedish Massage helps to stretch ligaments and tendons, making them more flexible.
Swedish massage is also known to stimulate the skin and nervous system to enhance emotional and physical wellbeing.

Who needs it?
People who want to improve their flexibility
How often should you get it?
Swedish massage is great because you can get it as often as you want. If you have a strain or a sprain, one time may even be enough to help you loosen it up. If you have a little worse of an injury, or are working to improve your flexibility, we recommend that you get this type of massage at least once a month to see the best results.
After your massage:
Avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol for 24 hours
Avoid overly strenuous exercise for 24 hours
As always, it’s important to allow your body time to rest and heal from within!
