Relaxing Massage

Classic Relaxation Massage

Swedish massage therapy Birmingham, Al

Known most often as Swedish massage, our Classic Relaxation Massage uses light to firm pressure to smooth and relax muscles while reducing pain and stress. 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. The basic components of Swedish massage include: sliding, kneading, gliding, rhythmic tapping and other movements meant to smooth aching muscles. 

Though most people think of Swedish massage for relaxation, it is also beneficial for your overall well-being by increasing oxygen levels in the blood, decreasing toxins in the muscles, and improving flexibility and circulation.

WHAT TO EXPECT

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.
