When you need to relax your body and mind, the classic stress remedy of Swedish massage is universally renowned as the method of choice. Our massage therapists use a number of stroking, kneading, pressure, tapping, and rubbing motions applied to specific areas of the body to treat and prevent a variety of aches and pains. Though it has been medically proven effective therapeutic treatment for pain reduction, joint stiffness, and relief of osteoarthritis, our clients report that Swedish massage is an effective way to rid oneself of the stress associated with the daily grind. Treating yourself to a Swedish massage might be just the thing you need to be able to face the day both pain-free and stress-free!

If you are in the St. Pete, Clearwater, or Largo area, please stop by and check out our facilities to see how our expert massage therapists can help bring relaxation and comfort back into your daily life, get rid of aches and pains, and even aid in the prevention of headaches and other aches and pains.

Methods

The goals of a Swedish massage are to relax the tissues of the body, relieve both physical and psychological tension, and to improve circulation. Our massage therapists are trained to provide an authentic classical massage experience. Swedish massage has its foundations in the western studies of anatomy and physiology rather than eastern practices that focus on the concepts like chi, meridians, and chakra. In practice, this type of massage therapy consists specifically of four different kinds of motions designed to increase circulation in the blood vessels and decrease swelling in the muscles. These motions are effleurage, petrissage, friction and tapotement. Effleurage are the long fluid strokes, petrissage are the kneading motions, friction through vigorous rubbing is used to generate heat and bring blood to the surface, and tapotement is a sort of rhythmic tapping technique.

Health Benefits

In addition to having been shown in studies to help reduce pain, muscle tension, and anxiety, Swedish massage has been shown in medical studies to help relieve the symptoms of many different health problems. For example they have shown that it may also help in relieving:

  • Digestive disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia related to stress
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Paresthesias and nerve pain
  • Soft tissue strains or injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Temporomandibular joint pain

 

The Personal Touch

In addition to these proven benefits of Swedish massage, many recipients report that they form a close personal bond with their massage therapist. If you have a stressful lifestyle and finally have a place to unwind and receive some personal attention and relief from their worries, having someone dependable to help take that weight off of your shoulders is always welcome.
