Swedish Body Massage Nottingham

What is a Swedish Body Massage Nottingham?

Swedish body massage is a popular body massage that lasts approximately one hour. Swedish Body Massage helps promote relaxation as well as help ease aches and pains. This is achieved by massaging muscles with long strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.  Your body responds to Swedish body massage in two ways.

Firstly, there’s a physical effect on your body helping to reduce muscle aches and pains or increase joint mobility. Then there are the psychological benefits of providing feelings of relaxation and reduced feelings of stress.

Your massage therapist may use oils and creams to gently nourish and massage your skin. Using massage techniques on the body, your massage therapist can assess the areas where your stress and tension are felt the most. They can then gently massage those areas to help release the tension, pressure, and stress.

Swedish Massage techniques used by your therapist can include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms as well as kneading, percussion-like tapping bending, and stretching.
