Swedish Body Massage
Swedish Body Massage (also known as Holistic Massage) is a complementary therapy that was developed by Per Henrik Ling in the 19th century. This type of body massage is carried out directly on the skin, using oil while you relax on a massage couch. Towels are provided to ensure warmth and comfort. Swedish Body Massage is very effective at soothing muscles, improving circulation and reducing stress. It is the perfect way to unwind and completely relax. A Swedish Body Massage treatment lasts one hour. Longer or shorter sessions are available.
The BBC programme “Trust me, I’m a Doctor” carried out an experiment in 2018. After a 1 hour massage a blood test recorded an increase of 70% in white blood cells (T-Lymphocytes). These cells are defender cells and are found in the lymph tissues in the body where an immune response initially occurs and also have a role in repairing tissue in the body. Please see the link below for the full article on the beneficial effects of body massage on the immune system.
