Swedish massage is the most common form of massage practiced in the United States and by Carolinas Mobile Massage Therapy of Charlotte. The purpose of Swedish massage is to bring relaxation to the body by manipulating the muscles with long, gliding strokes that follow the direction of blood that’s returning to the heart. Lotions and Gels are often used to minimize friction between the therapist’s hands and the recipient and to stimulate the skin. These movements help to increase blood oxygen levels, rid the muscles of toxins and waste products, and increase overall flexibility while reducing tension. Swedish massage is a very gentle and relaxing massage. If you’ve never had a massage before…this is a good one to try first!
We use the following lotions and gels:
- Unscented Swedish lotion or gel
