This is the classic Western form of massage, pioneered by a Swedish Physiologist in 1812. It is the foundation of many massage techniques and involves a sequence of movements working superficially and deeper into the tissue layers. Varying pressure is used to aid relaxation, increase circulation and soothe muscles and can be adjusted for specific tastes. The whole body can be worked on or specific, problematic areas, muscles and aches and pains can be concentrated on with great effect.
This treatment is great for;
- Increasing circulation,
- Relief of aching muscles,
- Increasing muscle tone,
- Improving skin tone,
- Soothing Nerves,
- Releasing toxins from muscles,
Massage is actually passive exercise – increasing the circulation, muscle and skin tone and encouraging release and disposal of toxins.
