Swedish Relaxation Massage Is Restorative
Anyone needing to relax their body and mind can benefit from a Swedish relaxation massage. This form of massage uses a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax the body and engage the sympathetic nervous system. Swedish massage feels nice and many clients fall asleep! Swedish relaxation massage is what most people associate with spas. It is designed to sooth the nervous system.
What To Expect at Precision Wellness
We start by applying an all natural lotion to your skin that allows our therapists to implement gliding massage techniques to warm up and decompress the muscle tissue, releasing tension and breaking up muscle "knots" or tight tissue bundles, called adhesions. Swedish massage promotes relaxation, eases muscle tension, and creates other health benefits.
If you want more dramatic results and can tolerate deeper pressure and even some momentary discomfort to get longer lasting relief from muscle stiffness and pain, consider booking a deep tissue massage. Deep tissue massage is a blend of neuromuscular or structural integration techniques and Swedish relaxation massage.
Why It's Called Swedish Massage
Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology and was pioneered by a Swedish physiologist, Per Henrik Ling (1776-1839) at the University of Stockholm.
