A Swedish massage is the perfect beginner’s or first time massage choice since it provides gentle pressure to soothe sore muscles and loosen tight joints. Considered the perfect balance of relaxation and therapy, Swedish massage is extremely popular due to its gentle yet effective results. Among its many benefits, a Swedish massage effectively and proactively eases tension, unwinds stress and promotes deep relaxation to the client.
Just like the other massage techniques we use here at Springs Chiropractic, a Swedish massage is also performed on a massage table with the client undressed and draped in a private sheet for comfort and security. Our Swedish massage professionals use soothing massage oils to lubricate the skin, providing smooth gliding strokes for optimal kneading and tapping strokes. This allows for a relaxing yet productive therapy session.
The amount of friction and pressure used during a Swedish massage can range from light to firm, depending on the preference and need of the client. As with any massage session, the client’s comfort level is of the upmost importance to our massage therapists so we encourage constant and honest communication with it comes to level of touch or pressure preference to increase the effectiveness of the massage. This allows a better, stress relieving experience for our clients.
Swedish massage therapy goes beyond just simple relaxation. This type of massage is beneficial for many reasons, including improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension, increasing the level of oxygen into the blood, and decreasing muscle toxins. All of these above are ailments many people suffer from daily, so if you are looking to ease tension or stress in a relaxing, soft way, give our Colorado Springs Swedish massage professionals a call today and book an appointment at Springs Chiropractic.
