Swedish Massage Jacksonville NC
Swedish is the most commonly known therapy in the western world. It is based upon concepts of anatomy and physiology rather than the Asian style of massage which has its origins in the theories of Chinese medicine-affecting the flow of "chi" or life-force energy throughout the body.
The Basics of Swedish
The primary goal of Jacksonville NC Swedish massage is total relaxation of the entire body by massaging the muscles. We achieve this by increasing the circulation and oxygenation of the blood, which decreases the number of toxins in the muscles. We do this by applying long gliding strokes in the direction of blood flow to the heart.
Other massage techniques employ firm kneading, circular pressure using the palms of the hand, and percussion-like tapping. Talk to your professional massage therapist regarding the amount of pressure and firmness used-a massage can be gentle to vigorous (deep tissue) depending on the recipient's needs and wants.
