This modality is a full body massage using light to medium pressure combined with natural essential oils in order to promote relaxation and healing of the mind, body and spirit. The main benefit of Swedish Massage is the overall relaxation that it provides. The strokes of the massage relax individual muscles, while the overall experience eliminates mental stress, but they also replicate the movements of the circulatory system. By performing the strokes toward the heart, Swedish massage drains metabolic waste from the limbs of the body. Some of the strokes used in Swedish Massage increase blood flow, which further quickens the removal of bodily waste.
