Swedish Massage (A popular general-purpose system of massage, devised in Sweden.) Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of bodywork in the West. If it's your first time at the spa or you don't get massage often, Swedish massage is the best place to start. One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Swedish massage and other types of therapeutic massage are performed by trained, licensed massage therapists. A Swedish massage can be slow and gentle, or vigorous and bracing, depending on the therapist's personal style and what he or she is trying to achieve.
