Swedish Massage in Ludlow - What can I expect during treatment?

The practitioner is hugely experienced and offers Swedish massage of the highest quality. In this Ludlow clinic, Swedish massage can last 45 minutes or an hour and 15 minutes and will require practitioner contact during treatment. The therapist generally uses massage oil and applies long, smooth strokes over the body, using firm but gentle pressure to improve circulation, ease muscle aches and tension, increase flexibility and facilitate relaxation.

Swedish massage in Ludlow is applied with the person covered by towel, a technique called "draping" and one part of the body  is uncovered, massaged, and then covered up before moving on to another part of the body. This is a comfortable and considered technique and your practitioner will maintain your privacy and trust to ensure you are completely at ease.

The half hour treatment involves work to the neck and back and is an ideal introduction for those who haven't had massage before. An hour treatment involves the same work to the neck and back but also includes the legs and feet. The full hour and a half treatment is a luxurious treatment that works the entire body.

Sam Jones is the only male therapist in Ludlow offering Swedish massage and can either give a strong, firm treatment or is mindful and sensitive enough to vary his Swedish massage technique for those who would prefer to come to his private Ludlow based clinic for a quiet, calm and relaxing experience.

What are the benefits of Swedish Massage in Ludlow?

Swedish massage therapy is a great complementary treatment for sports injuries or rehabilitation recovery (as well as other physical health conditions.) Like other natural healing treatments Swedish massage is considered to help treat a number of health conditions and is known for its ability to provide natural pain relief, decrease stiffness in joints and improve mobility. It is an excellent non-invasive therapy for those suffering from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis and other musculoskeletal issues that might otherwise require surgical interventions.

What is really unique about Swedish massage is that it has the capacity to improve circulation, increase oxygen, and aid in the detoxification process. By speeding up detoxification, waste materials are more quickly eliminated from the lymphatic system and this boosts the self-healing mechanisms of the body. This is a hugely rewarding treatment and I recommend that every client should try this technique at some stage. Whether you require recovery from injury, or need to de-stress, this treatment will give complete head-to-toe relief.

Swedish massage - a brief history

Swedish massage was first developed by a Swedish physiologist, Henri Peter Ling, at the University of Stockholm in 1812. Using a variety of long, flowing strokes (including effleurage, friction, petrisage, tapotement, traction, and vibration) this massage modality is not only the most widely used massage therapy but is also the most commonly taught massage technique today.
