Therapeutic Massage, or Swedish massage, is a complementary therapy that aims to aid relaxation, rejuvenation and improve sense of wellbeing.
Through using various techniques, a massage therapist aims to relax the muscles by applying pressure and carrying out movements in the direction of blood flow. The aim of massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Massage could also positively affect your lymphatic, circulatory and digestive systems, and also help to improve mood and sense of well-being.
Treatments will vary in time depending on the areas of the body that are focussed on during a therapy session. Your therapist will work with you to identify aims of the session and to develop a treatment plan suited to your needs.
