Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when many people consider a massage. As the best-known sort of bodywork done today, one of the main goals of the Swedish massage method is to relax the complete body.
This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is very helpful for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
