The most relaxing massage ever!

When one thinks of relaxation a Swedish massage quickly comes to mind, after all the goal of a Swedish massage is to relax the whole body. Swedish massage is performed with long gliding strokes up and down the back repeated throughout the entire body from head to toe. Swedish Massage is deeply relaxing and enjoyable. This massage is used to improve circulation, and alleviate tension in the underlying tissue. This massage gently separates points of adhesion (knots).

There are other benefits to Swedish massage such as increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension. It also does wonders in decreasing the levels of the stress hormone cortisol, as well as arginine vasopressin-a hormone that can lead to increases in cortisol. Fight stress with a Swedish massage at Massage Evolved today!  This is a great introduction to massage therapy if it’s your first session.

 

How To Prepare For The Best Swedish Session

  • Drink plenty of water before and after your massage avoid any carbonated or caffeinated drinks 

  • Come in feeling comfortable – eat healthfully on the day of your appointment, try not to eat a big meal right before your massage 

  • Arrive ten minutes early, so you have time to relax and discuss with your independent professional massage therapist any goals you have for the session (for example, greater flexibility, less tension, headache relief) and specify areas you’d like to focus on.

  • Let your therapist know about any medical conditions, or anything you feel is important to the session, and feel free to ask questions.

  • Please speak up if you would like more pressure or if its too much pressure
