Swedish Massage by Lou Green of Shefford Gym
The term swedish massage refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and massaging in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.
The main purpose of swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Other possible benefits include stimulation of the circulation, an increase in muscle tone and a balance of the muscular skeletal system.
Swedish massage shortens recovery from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid and other metabolic wastes. It also increases circulation without increasing heart load.
The initial consultation will include a discussion about issues or injuries that you may have and an explanation of the massage process and how it is designed to help you.
