Swedish massage is one of the most common forms of massage in the West, from which many other massage forms were born.  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. 

 

A study conducted by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, and published in The New York Times, found that volunteers who received a 45-minute Swedish massage experienced significant decreases in levels of the stress hormone cortisol, as well as arginine vasopressin-a hormone that can lead to increases in cortisol.  Volunteers also had increases in the number of lymphocytes, white blood cells that are part of the immune system, and a boost in the immune cells that may help fight colds and the flu. 

 

Swedish Massage techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching.  Your Swedish massage session will always be customised to your specific needs.

 

A Swedish Massage session can:

  • relieve stress

  • encourage relaxation

  • help manage pain

  • improve flexibility and range of motion

  • relax muscles

  • lower blood pressure

  • improve lymphatic flow, transport bacteria & toxins away from skin cells

  • strengthen and tone muscles

 

(There are some contraindications to this therapy so we will have a quick chat about your health.)

Appointments are available in my therapy room at home in Hayling Island

 

Full body sessions are an hour and charged at £40.  Back, neck and shoulder sessions are also available as part of a TheraParty.

Longer 90 minute Super Sessions include your choice of massage, Reiki, Indian head or natural facelift massage.
