All of these techniques are used to relax the muscles and remove any knots or tension that has built up in the body.

Besides the calming benefits, Swedish massage is good for:

• Easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins
• Improving circulation by increasing oxygen flow in the blood
• Helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple
• Stimulating the nervous system
• Reducing emotional and physical stress

In addition, Swedish massage can cause the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers into the brain and central nervous system. The release of muscular tension also helps to unblock and equalise the general flow of life energy in the body (known by different names in different cultures as vital force, bio-energy, c'hi, prana, ki, etc).

Swedish massage feels good, is relaxing and invigorating. It affects the nerves, muscles, glands, and circulation, while promoting good health and wellbeing.
