The Swedish (relaxation)

Relaxation! It is a pleasure, a reward that you offer yourself, a moment of well being and appeasement. Swedish massage is ideal if you want to get rid of stress, anxiety, tension, nervousness and fatigue. It is, first of all, a message that tones and relaxes the muscles. It also promotes blood and lymphatic circulation and the elimination of toxins. The therapist will adapt the rhythm and depth of the maneuvers according to the needs of the person being massaged.  Swedish massage relaxes both the body and the mind. Particularly soothing, it is appreciated for its ability to reduce the effects of stress on the body. Moreover, a firmer and vigorous massage is ideal for relaxing muscular tension. Similarly, this technique relieves pain caused by poor posture, repetitive movements or sports injury. It provides relaxation, tone and suppleness to the body.
