The term "Swedish Massage" refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage was developed in 1700's by a Swedish doctor named Per Henrik Ling.
Ling’s theories were popularized by a fellow Swedish physician, Johann Mezger, who helped legitimize Ling’s techniques in the public’s mind by giving them French names. Most massage practiced in the West is in one way or another derived from Ling’s original work.
I will moisturize the skin with massage oil and perform various massage strokes. These movements warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually break up muscle "knots" or adhered tissues known as adhesions.
I can tailor the Swedish Massage to your needs. Tell me where you would like extra attention e.g.: neck & shoulders, arms, tight calves or the lower back and I will work deep in those areas. It is a top to toe relaxation treatment.
Treatment can last 60 minutes or 90 minutes, depend of your needs or goals.
