Swedish massage is a very classic oil massage that requires fluid and long movements that aims to dissolve tension and strengthen muscles and joints. Its invigorating and relaxing effect promotes blood and lymphatic circulation and the elimination of toxins, and helps the body regain its natural balance. The theoretical springs of this discipline are numerous: its creator, Henrink Ling was inspired by the knowledge of physiology, anatomy and the concepts of physical education of the Nordic peoples. He also used his movement experience as a fencing master and his knowledge of ancestral massage techniques.
Some specific benefits of holistic massage include:
Relieves and relaxes tight, sore muscles and stiff joints
Encourages better blood circulation and lymphatic drainage aiding the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells, while boosting the immune system and eliminating toxins
Improves skin and muscle tone, moisturising and softening skin with natural oils
Encourages deeper slower breathing patterns which help to improve posture and ease of movement
Promotes a state of relaxation and feelings of wellbeing, thus reduces the effects of stress and anxiety, including aiding normal digestion and increasing the release of ‘feel good’ hormones
Improves sleep and stimulates the body as a single system, increasing energy levels and alertness, and reducing fatigue
Supports a deepened awareness of the breath and the body, promoting a sense of connection, inner peace and tranquillity
