Advanced Massage is a more vigorous form of massage than that used in Aromatherapy and basic Swedish
Massage, however, it is less firm than Sports and Remedial Massage. Advanced Swedish Massage has its roots in Eastern Medicine and is particularly recognised for its ability to provide deep tissue and muscle relaxation and assist with joint mobility. Practitioners use a combination of gentle flowing massage along with friction, kneading, percussion and stimulation of pressure points, as well as stretching and joint manipulation.
The aim of Advanced Massage is for the client to be able to move freely and without pain. As a therapist you will observe your clients posture and balance and will teach them breathing techniques along with exercises to help prevent recurrence of pain and to maintain mobility. In addition to joint mobility and pain reduction, this can be very helpful for stress reduction, digestive problems including irritable bowel syndrome and constipation, as well as asthma, and bronchitis.
