SWEDISH MASSAGE

Brief history of Swedish Massage:

Because touch is such a primary human need, massage is rooted deep in our culture. The Chinese were practicing massage as long ago as 3000BC: in India, sacred, ancient Hindu texts include massage in their guidelines for hygiene and wellbeing. Egyptian tombs contain evidence that shows that massage was also important in their culture.

In the sporting arena, the athletes of ancient Greece used massage before and after competing while the Romans recognised the benefits for injured gladiators. Massage was also important to cultured Roman citizens; after their bathing rituals in hot springs, many Romans liked to round off their visits to the baths with a relaxing full body massage.

Modern massage therapy is the work of Per Henrik Ling (1776-1839). As a result of extensive research and practical experience at his Institute, he developed a scientific system known as Swedish Massage. 

What happens during a massage?

During the treatment towels will be used to maintain the client's modesty.

Natasha normally employs aromatherapy oils mixed to each client's individual requirements but may also use creams or talc. These media can help to nourish the skin and allow a fluid, free-flowing massage.

If clients express a preference a base oil may be used with no additional essential oils.

A client usually responds to massage in two main ways. Firstly, there is a physical effect on the body; for example, by helping to reduce muscle stiffness, or increase joint mobility. There are psychological benefits too - such as feelings of relaxation and wellbeing.

Overall, a massage helps the body to relax and unwind, which makes it an ideal antidote to today's stressful lifestyle but it can also be a rejuveniating massage.

 

After the treatment:

In order to gain maximum benefit from the massage, the client is advised to rest afterwards as this helps the bodys natural healing process.

A heavy meal should be avoided in the first 2 hours following a treatment, as should alcohol and tobacco for at least 24 hours.

Plenty of water should be consumed as this helps to flush away toxins.
