The famous Swedish Massage
The Swedish massage at CURAVITA Byward is incredibly relaxing. It is intended to relax and calm the muscles by eliminating tension and stiffness. Using a kneading and stretching technique, it has a gentle to medium level of pressure and this level is always determined by the person receiving the massage.
In addition to pure relaxation, Swedish massage also improves circulation, has the ability to aleve muscular pain, and is also known to have powerful, positive effects on those who battle depression and anxiety.
Swedish massage has been known to help improve the lives of those with conditions ranging from arthritis and fibromyalgia to carpal tunnel syndrome and chronic migraines. And if that weren’t enough, it also has the ability to boost immune function and diminish scar tissues.
Before any massage appointment begins, your therapist should speak to you about what is involved and encourage you to communicate freely with them, to ensure the massage session is customized for their optimal benefit.
The Swedish massage technique itself features a circular pressure applied by hands and palms. It can include elements of kneading, stretching, tapping and bending. Overall, the level of pressure ranges from gentle to medium.
