Massage| Swedish massage
Last week I blogged about a Vitamin C facial I recently received. On that same visit to the spa, I also received a Swedish massage. A Swedish massage is described as technique used to relax the entire body. This entire body relaxation is achieved by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Responses, from the body, can include a lower heart rate, a lower breathing rate, a lower blood pressure, and lower stress level. My body responded well to the careful an invigorating technique.
