Swedish massage is an entire body treatment that is suitable for everyone. This style of massage is the most widely practiced and popular technique, designed to improve blood circulation, promote relaxation, and provide relief from tense and tight muscles. During your treatment, your therapist will use their hands, forearms, and elbows to apply a light-to-medium pressure, massaging your muscles with long, gliding strokes. Other techniques that may also be used are kneading, deep circular movements, bending, stretching, and oscillatory movements that shake or vibrate the body. Trigger point release may also be incorporated if a contracted muscle or knot is found.
At Alia wellness centre we like to start every appointment by asking you how you are feeling and what you have come in for — so we can ensure your treatment is adapted to your individual needs. If you have an area of concern, such as a tight neck, you can ask your therapist to spend more time in this area. We aim to provide the perfect balance of individualized treatment and overall relaxation.
Are you depressed, or just having a bad day? In either case, a massage to feel better is a great idea. However, the severity, frequency, and duration of symptoms of both general anxiety and depression vary from person to person, and even from day today. Sometimes our clients do not even realize how anxious they were until after the massage when they are feeling relaxed and content. Massage therapy for stress and anxiety is one thing that can reduce those negative effects.
