Keystone Body Therapies incorporate a Swedish Massage into our Signature Massage. This modality of massage provides relaxation, connectivity, flow, and increased circulation. Swedish Massage, also known as Classical Massage, builds the foundation and continuity to our structural bodywork, injury massage, and myofascial therapy.
What is Swedish Massage?
SCHEDULE YOURS TODAY!
Swedish massage is a massage ‘modality’ that incorporates long, fluid strokes, kneading strokes, and percussion or vibration when required. The goal of Swedish Massage is to relax the entire body by increasing oxygen in the blood, reducing toxins, and improving blood circulation.
WHY SWEDISH MASSAGE?
Swedish Massage Versus Deep Tissue Massage
The desired outcome from a Swedish Massage is different than a Deep Tissue massage. With a Swedish Massage, the goal is to relax, lower blood pressure and increase circulation. With a deep tissue massage, you may still get similar benefits to a Swedish Massage, but the aim is to work on specific knots and injuries, as the strokes tend to also be deeper and slower.
What is a Swedish Massage Good for
Swedish is good for people that have a high stress lifestyle, insomnia, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, etc. We typically recommend our Signature Massage, which includes a perfect blend of both the Swedish Massage and Therapeutic Bodywork.
