Swedish massage is one of the most commonly used massage forms and is also referred to as Classic massage.
Massage is not a luxury it is a way to a happier and healthier life
A Swedish massage is without a doubt the most popular massage there is. With this classic massage form you are massaged by means of a number of basic techniques, so that you can enjoy the necessary relaxation of body and mind. The pressure varies from light to firm and makes you feel reborn after the massage. Within the Swedish massage, the masseur works almost exclusively with the hands.
Swedish massage is characterized by starting from anatomy and blood flow direction. Good blood circulation and help with self-healing capacity are the biggest goal in addition to relaxation.
Oil, cream or lotion can be used to reduce the skin’s resistance.
A Swedish massage consists of a balanced mix of gentle stroking movements, warming up and loosening the muscles and applying pressure in strategic places. Your blood circulation and lymph system are stimulated, toxins are removed and chronic pain is reduced.
The heat effect and touch of a massage release hormones in your body, which reduces the stress level and makes you feel better about yourself. A massage is therefore not only very nice, but also very good for your mood, energy level and general health.
You can have your entire body massaged or choose to have a part of your body massaged. A back, neck and shoulder massage is still a popular partial massage and is very suitable for those who sit in the office all day and therefore have a stiff neck or stiff back. You determine the pressure and the areas to be treated yourself. Therefore always indicate to the masseur what your wishes or possible complaints are. Only in this way is the massage fully tailored to your personal situation and you can relax optimally.
During the massage we use massage oil with essential oils. Deep tissue massage and aromatherapy is a very nice combination with the aim to bring the body in an optimal state in a natural way for relaxation and balance. We use Young Living essential oils, which are 100% pure with a therapeutic effect.
The massage oil warms and soothes a tired and stressed body and helps to combat the harmful effects of daily activities. This soothing blend of essential oils will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. The Ortho Ease massage oil is also used during the raindrop technique, specially developed by Gary Young. More information about the raindrop massage can be found here.
The massage oil contains pure vegetable oil with essential oils, including Wintergreen, Eucalyptus Globulus and Radiata, Thyme, Peppermint, Juniper and Vetiver. This mix is perfectly tailored to nourish and smooth the muscles.
Relaxation is the oil to relax and relieve stress at the end of the day. It is a great blend of essential and vegetable oils that provides emotional balance to the mind and body. The oils have calming and restorative properties. When the right essential oils are combined, massage therapy can be a powerful health boost.
The massage oil contains pure vegetable oil with essential oils: Tangerine, Peppermint, Rosewood, Lavender, Spearmint, and Ylang Ylang.
