Integrative Holistic Bodywork is a combination of Swedish Massage, Hydrotherapy, Trigger Point, Compression, Reflexology, Craniosacral, Symphony of the Cells, Essential Oils, Reiki, Chakra Balancing, and or Sound. Holistic Massage is a therapeutic massage which is a hands-on therapy that affects the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of the body. ... Massage has a subtle yet profound influence on all the systems of the body, as it encourages and supports the body's own healing abilities to awaken.
In a Swedish massage, the therapist lubricates the skin with massage oil or lotion and performs various massage strokes. These movements warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually breaking up muscle "knots" or adhered tissues, called adhesions.
A Swedish massage is designed to relax the entire body by rubbing the muscles in long, gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But the benefits of Swedish massage go beyond relaxation. It can help increase the level of oxygen in the blood and improve circulation and flexibility.
Swedish massage therapy uses softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage. This adjustment of pressure makes it an ideal massage for relaxation.
Best known for soothing tight muscles and boosting well-being, Swedish massage also offers a whole host of other health benefits, including:
· Swedish massage is a whole-body therapeutic massage treatment that works the soft tissues and muscles to help restore health - creating a calming and balancing effect on the nervous system.
One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins – the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of well-being.
Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenaline, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
· The massage therapist will use five main types of massage techniques in a Swedish massage: stroking and gliding; kneading; rubbing; tapping or pounding; vibration
