Swedish Massage In Norwich

Swedish Massage

One of the most common types of massage aimed at relaxation. Using oil or lotion to protect the skin from friction, which involves classic massage strokes of gentle stroking, pressing, sweeping and lifting motions.

The goal of Swedish massage is to promote relaxation through soothing your muscles and stimulating your endorphins - serotonin and dopamine, which helps to improve mood and the feeling of emotional well-being. 

By increasing circulation, massage increases the blood supply and nutrients to the muscles. Increased circulation also means more oxygen delivered through the body, resulting in a boost in energy. Massage dilates the blood vessels and widens the membrane pores in the body, improving your body’s ability to deliver fresh blood to muscles and organs.

Stress can manifest in the body with increased muscle tension and sometimes pain. Stress can manifest in the mind with increased worry or anxiety. Swedish massage helps to clear the body and mind of unwanted responses to stress.
