Massage is viewed as something traditional and exotic, and many Coventry massage parlors and Blackpool massage salons bet their money on being as oriental and foreign as they can. Many Coventry massage parlors and Blackpool massage salons also try to come off esoteric and new-agey, catering to the wants of their target demographic. Did you know that not all massage is rooted in the “ancient and mystical arts of the East” or “knowledge passed down from a mountain hermit of Tibet”?

Massage is viewed as something traditional and exotic, and many Coventry massage parlors and Blackpool massage salons bet their money on being as oriental and foreign as they can. Many Coventry massage parlors and Blackpool massage salons also try to come off esoteric and new-agey, catering to the wants of their target demographic. Did you know that not all massage is rooted in the “ancient and mystical arts of the East” or “knowledge passed down from a mountain hermit of Tibet”? It’s true, lots of Coventry massage salons and Blackpool massage parlors offer Swedish massage. Swedish massage was developed in the West, and is a scientifically proven method of making you feel better and get healthier.

Swedish massage is a very common form of therapeutic massage not limited to Coventry massage salons and Blackpool massage parlors. Swedish massage is often performed in various spas and saunas, and you can also run into it in any number of commercial gyms and even in some hospitals. It’s that popular. In fact, many professional athletes regularly get a Swedish massage to relax their muscles and improve sports performance. Then again, some of these guys can do anything if they think it will help them get ahead.  No-one will be surprised if top basketball players place a coin in their left sneaker and a clove of garlic in the right one to increase performance or just to get lucky. Still, Swedish massage offered at many Coventry massage salons and Blackpool massage parlors is more scientific than that. Swedish massage was created by the same man who pioneered physical therapy. This man’s name was Per Henrik Ling, and he worked at the University of Stockholm at the time when he developed this form of massage. Unlike more esoteric Eastern forms of massage, Swedish massage is based not on energy line work, but on scientific anatomy and physiology concepts.

Swedish massage is a great way to relax the body and improve the circulation. It’s done by first lubricating the skin with massage oil, and then performing various massage strokes. These strokes warm up the muscle tissue, relaxing the muscles and ridding them of muscle “knots”. A typical session of Swedish massage can last anywhere from 50 to 90 minutes, and the longer the session is, the better you will end up feeling afterwards and the more benefits you will get. Swedish massage involves pressure not only to the muscles, but also to the bones, and it is also supposed to get more beneficial as it gets to deeper tissues. This is something that can be achieved only during longer sessions, and some people might find it unpleasant. Still, unpleasant sensations are different from pain, and they don’t necessarily mean that a session should be stopped. Pain, however, is a dead giveaway that something is wrong, and means an instant end of the session.
