Jennifer LMT Licensed Massage Therapy Kihei Maui Hawaii

Swedish massage, also known as the western or classic style of massage, is a scientific system of manipulations of the muscles and connective tissue of the body for relaxation, rehabilitation or health maintenance. It is comprised of five basic strokes: effleurage, petrissage, friction, tapotement and vibration. Numerous therapeutic effects of massage are produced by mechanical pressure, through a reflex action or metabolically. By receiving a Swedish Massage circulation is increased, blood pressure is lowered, toxins are removed, the nervous system is sedated (or stimulated depending on the stroke used), pain is reduced, digestion improves, and endorphins are released which lowers anxiety levels, minimizes tension and promotes a sense of well-being.
