Swedish Massage dates back to the 1800's and has been embraced over the years for its many benefits. The art of massage is particularly valued in today's environment of work, anxiety and stress. Keeping in mind that much of the disease process is a result of stress, the management of stress is critical and massage is one of the most effective and appreciated tools with a variety of benefits:
Whether you you have been getting massage therapy over a long period of time or you are new to the experience of massage, the Swedish Massage at Garden Springs Therapeutic Massage Center is a favorite for many reasons. Your session begins with a type of broad, flowing stroke that will begin to calm your nervous system and release exterior muscle tension. As your tension continues to release, your therapist will increase the pressure and begin to move into specific areas needing this relief. The use of long strokes, kneading motions, friction, stretching, and sometimes tapping on the layers of tissue against one another are used to increase blood flow to the area. Our therapists often use a lotion or light oil that will reduce friction to the skin and secondarily, stimulate and hydrate your skin.
The Swedish Massage clients at Garden Springs Therapeutic Massage are evaluated prior to your massage so that we have a sense of your goals and expectations from massage. We want you to ask us any questions you might have about your session. Our therapists have a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology and want to tailor your Swedish Massage to address the areas experiencing discomfort and any other areas that may be contributing to your symptoms. During your Swedish Massage, it is important to communicate clearly so that your therapist can react and adjust to your specific needs. While your Swedish massage therapist will work to find the areas of particular need for massage, your assistance in identifying these spots makes a difference. We never want to cause discomfort and your guidance to us is helpful.
Our therapists are knowledgeable of the physical benefits of massage therapy and its effect on many systems of the body. A routine of therapeutic Swedish Massage can assist to resolve a range of issues: reduce low back pain, improve range of motion problems, enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow, rehabilitate weak, tight,injured and overused muscles, increase joint flexibility, and reduce suffering from migraine headaches. People suffering from migraine headaches often find that massage can reduce their pain and their reliance upon pain medication.
