swedish massage

Swedish Massage in Central London by reistered masseurs What is the purpose of Swedish massage?

The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Massage helps flush the tissues of harmful deposits such as lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes – improving recovery time from muscular strain.

Swedish massage also stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable, and stimulates the skin and sooth the nervous system at the same time.

What are the benefits of Swedish massage?

Swedish massage not only feels exceptionally good, but is relaxing and invigorating. It affects the nerves, muscles, glands, circulation, and promotes our general health and wellbeing. As a treatment it helps reduce stress, both emotional and physical, and is often suggested in a program for stress management.The treatment is very sensitive to pressure and takes into account the delicate or tender areas of your body, so it should be comfortable and soothing.
