Swedish massage is credited to a Swedish physiologist, Per Henrick Ling, although there is debate surrounding its true origins. Since then, it has since become one of the most popular types of massages in the world. At Melbourne Chiro Clinic, our team of therapists can provide excellent Swedish massage therapy that can alleviate stress, release toxins, and relieve muscular tension.
Our Swedish massage in Melbourne uses a sequence of techniques and a combination of gliding strokes, kneading movements and shaking motions to stimulate oxygen flow in the blood and target specific treatment points. These are designed to make you feel relaxed and invigorated while eliminating pain and stiffness throughout your body. With over two decades of experience, you can trust us to deliver the highest quality Swedish massage in Melbourne.
Swedish massage is the foundation of other types of massage therapy, including sports massage and deep tissue massage. All forms of massage stem from the same concept of stimulating the muscles in order to relax them. However, sports and deep tissue massage focus on repairing damage to muscles, tendons, ligaments and tissues, while Swedish massage is more committed to helping you achieve complete relaxation.
During your massage, you may experience a variety of techniques, including effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (striking), and friction (rubbing). These movements are used to work the muscles and create an overall feeling of relaxation.
The pressure and speed of the massage can vary depending on your massage therapist’s style and any preferences you’ve discussed.
The main purpose of our Swedish massage is to improve the circulation of blood and oxygen in your body as well as release toxins from the muscles. There are also a number of other benefits, including:
It’s no secret that stress can be damaging to your health, so taking steps to minimise or reduce it can be beneficial for your overall well being. Relieving stress may also reduce your risk of cardiovascular issues, high blood pressure, weight gain, extreme weight loss, and many other health issues. You may also find yourself sleeping better and having more energy throughout the day.
If you’re looking for a massage to help an injury or relieve chronic pain and tight muscles, consider our Swedish deep tissue massage therapy instead. This will provide you with more pressure and deeper work that can benefit pain or scar tissue.
There’s no better choice for a Swedish deep tissue massage than Melbourne Chiro Clinic. Our friendly and experienced therapists in North Melbourne can help clients improve their quality of life with relaxing procedures in a comfortable environment.
