Swedish Massage

Usually, when people think of massage, the type of massage that they visualize is a Swedish massage. Developed in Stockholm several centuries ago, this form of bodywork has become the most common type of massage that is performed

The massage therapists at Massage Envy will rub the muscles with long gliding strokes in the same direction of blood flowing back to the heart to get the client’s body to relax. Firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending, stretching, and applying pressure with their hands and palms are a few other techniques used to calm the muscles of the body down. The use of lotion will not only reduce friction, but stimulate the skin as well.

The benefits of a Swedish massage includes an increase of oxygen in the blood, a decline in muscle toxins, better circulation and flexibility, and less muscle tension.
