Swedish massage uses movements to warm the muscles and work deep into the tissues to relieve tension and pain. This deeply relaxing massage can help with the build up of tension caused by sport, driving, being sat at a desk or computer for long periods of time or the general build up of stress from daily life.
The petrissage techniques used in Swedish massage manipulates the tissues and stimulates the blood circulation, releasing built up toxins stored in the tense muscles. The waste is then carried away by the lymphatic system leaving you feeling deeply relaxed and stimulated with a renewed sense of energy.
