Swedish massage techniques date back to the 18th century. This style of massage incorporates multiple movements of the wrists and hands to achieve specific therapeutic benefits. The main goal of a Swedish massage is to increase venous returns from extremities to the core.
The unique benefits of this massage are that it flushes uric acid, lactic acid, and other metabolic wastes from the body. This is why it’s extremely important to hydrate before and after each massage. This will help to improve circulation, and help to stretch the ligaments and tendons.
