Swedish massage therapy is the treatment that most people will imagine when they think about massage. One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. Full relaxation is accomplished by massaging the muscles and fascia using long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.
Swedish massage therapy isn’t just used for relaxation. Swedish massage is incredibly beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood through improving circulation, decreasing toxins left in muscles following exercise and easing the tension in muscles to increase flexibility.
The Berkeley Centre Health offers a bespoke Swedish massage which is an ideal stress-busting treatment for anyone with aching backs and shoulders, tight necks or tension headaches.
