What is it?

Swedish massage was developed in Sweden in the 1800s by the Swedish physiologist Per Henrikling and it is a system of massage and exercise with slow or more vigorous movement of the joints, used for relief of muscle tension, mental and physical relaxation.


There are numerous benefits associated with the use of Swedish Massage:


Every therapy has to be tailored to the individual. It is important first to discuss about your condition, the source and the symptoms of your discomfort and then apply the best treatment for you.
In a Swedish massage, I will start by working your back, applying basic techniques and various massage strokes including effleurage, kneading, friction, vibration and taping. Then I will work the back of each leg, moving then to the front part of your body, finishing with your neck and shoulders. The intensity varies based on your preference and tolerance or will may get firmer on a certain area of specific muscle tension. But if more intensive work is needed, another technique of Soft tissue massage can be considered.
