Classic Relaxation Massage

Swedish massage therapy Hoover, Al

Our Classic Relaxation Massage, most commonly referred to as Swedish Massage, uses light to firm pressure to smooth and relax muscles while reducing pain and stress. The basic components of Swedish massage include: sliding, kneading, gliding, rhythmic tapping and other movements meant to smooth aching muscles. This massage will increase oxygen levels in the blood, decrease toxins in the muscles, improve flexibility and circulation and is beneficial for your overall well-being.

WHAT TO EXPECT From your swedish massage

In a Swedish massage, a massage therapist will lubricate your skin with warm massage oil or lotion and perform a combination of massage strokes, using light to firm pressure, to work your muscles and soft tissues. The basic components of Swedish massage include:

  • sliding

  • kneading

  • gliding

  • rhythmic tapping

  • other movements meant to soothe aching muscles

These movements warm up the muscles and release tension, leaving you feeling relaxed and allowing the body’s different systems, including the lymphatic system, to work more efficiently.
