Swedish Massage Diploma

Swedish Massage

Massage is the art of healing through touch and pressure. It restores balance to the mind, body and spirit. Swedish Body Massage dates back from the early 19th century. It is the original massage technique that uses oils, involving a sequence of movements working superficially and deeper into the tissue layers.

It is one of the easiest ways of attaining and maintaining good health and something we do naturally. It is a healing instinct, innate in us all, to rub an aching shoulder or stubbed toe. By using oils and gentle manipulation, the power of touch eases our troubled minds, relieves aches and pains and provides a feeling of true relaxation.

Swedish Body Massage is an uplifting and energizing massage that stimulates circulation and generates an immediate sense of well-being. A light and relaxing treatment, Swedish Body massage is designed to ease away the aches and stresses of everyday life. Wonderful for relaxation, a full body massage includes work on the neck, shoulders, arms, upper chest, abdomen (optional), back and legs.
