Swedish massage uses oil, cream or powder and includes long strokes, kneading, friction, vibrations and stimulating movements using the hands, palms, thumbs and fingertips.
Movements are applied in the direction of the heart to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles.

By increasing blood flow the muscles are warmed and relaxed and the recovery time from muscular strain is shortened by the flushing out of lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic wastes from tissues in the body.

Swedish massage helps to reduce both emotional and physical stress by relaxing and invigorating the nerves, muscles, glands and circulation, while promoting health and well­being.
