What is Body (Swedish) Massage?
Body Massage has its roots in Eastern Medicine and uses oil or talc. The massage routine covers the full body using the main massage techniques. This is the UK's standard full body massage used throughout the industry and it also forms the basis for all advanced massage courses such as Sports Massage, Hot Stones Massage etc. It 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.
The aim of Body 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 stretching exercises to help maintain mobility. In addition to 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.
