Swedish massage is a modality that was developed in Sweden in the late 18th century with one of the primary aim being to relax the mind and entire body. This is achieved by massaging the muscles in long gliding movement in the direction of the blood flow. The benefits of Swedish massage is relaxation, increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific areas on the feet and hands, this is commonly incorporated with Swedish massage or deep tissue massage. Specific reflex points in the hands and feet correspond to different organs in the body aiding in an improvement of health.
