Swedish massage therapy was developed by Swedish doctor Par Henrik Ling in the late 19th century and involves the use of the hands, forearms and elbows to work the superficial muscles. It’s designed to promote relaxation, increase oxygen flow in the body and rid the body of toxins
The purpose of Swedish massage is to bring relaxation to the body by manipulating the muscles with long, gliding strokes that follow the direction of blood that’s returning to the heart. Lotions and oils are often used to minimize friction between the therapist’s hands and the recipient and stimulate the skin. The massage lasts anywhere between 30 to 40 minutes.
BENEFITS OF SWEDISH MASSAGE
Swedish massage is best known for helping people relax and for repairing overworked or injured muscles. Having regular Swedish massages will enhance your circulatory system, meaning that your muscles, tissues and other parts of your body will get more oxygen delivered to them each day.
It also stimulates your lymphatic system, helping the body to rid itself of stored toxins and strengthening your immune system. The elimination of these toxins and metabolic wastes shortens recovery time after intense exercise.
Your nervous system also benefits from Swedish massage, which is why it’s so closely associated with relaxation and pampering. In fact, regular massage is often recommended as part of an overall stress management program.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage is a style of massage that is designed to get into the connective tissue of the body, rather than just the surface muscles.

BENEFITS OF DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Like other types of massage, deep tissue is most beneficial when undertaken on a regular basis, so that therapist and client can work together to correct long term problems, relax the body, and prevent injury.
