The aim of this type of massage is to remove tension and stress that has accumulated in the muscular framework of the body. It is used to bring the muscle back to its natural smooth state as many muscles tighten and shorten which eventually effect the mobility of the joint.
This tension occurs due to various conditions such as postural imbalances, repetitive activity at work or play, a lack of adequate and varied exercise and many others.
Emotional stress can also effect the muscular frame as negative emotion is stored in areas of the body causing congestion and lack of circulatory flow. Common areas of mental tension are reflected in the neck and shoulders causing headaches and affecting our clarity and concentration.
Of course illness and disease also affect us. Conditions such as fibromyalgia, Parkinsons’ Disease and Multiple Sclerosis can seriously compromise normal function.
Massage is a wonderful tool and at the hands of the therapist much ease and relief is found in all the above conditions mentioned.
In Swedish Body Massage oil such as almond or grapeseed is used as a medium which allows a non-friction and smooth handling of the muscle tissue. Client feedback is essential as every person has different requirements with regard to pressure tolerance and preference. Oil as such feeds the skin and leaves it nourished and moisturised as a bonus to your massage!
Draping for the consideration of modesty is adhered to at all times.
