Swedish Massage is one of several types of massage we offer at New Serenity Spa. It is the most common type or modality of massage. It’s what people think when they hear the word “massage.” This technique uses specific strokes and varying pressures to release dysfunctional holding patterns in the muscle and tissues. Depending upon individual preference, pressure can vary from light to deep. It includes long gliding strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, and shaking motions. This is combined with passive and active movements of the joints. This form of therapy will promote general relaxation, improve blood circulation, improve range of motion, and provide relief from muscle tension. It is effective for most ailments, because massaging the skin begins a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body.

Benefits of a Swedish Massage?

Let’s talk about the massage benefits from a Swedish Massage. As with other types of Massage, Swedish Massage will help in the circulation of Blood and oxygen throughout the body. It can also relieve joint pains and stiffness. Another immediate benefit that can be gained from this type of massage is the increased flexibility. It can also flush out body waste products such as the accumulation of lactic acid, again this is the result of improved blood and oxygen circulation. Stress buster is another term closely related when you are talking about Swedish massage. Clients report that after their session with Swedish Massage, they immediately feel invigorated. This could be due to the decrease in the levels of cortisol, which is known as the main hormones that cause stress.
