Holistic/Swedish Massage is a form of tissue manipulation which has developed over thousands of years. From ancient China to present-day Europe, it has been used for the promotion and restoration of health. Oils are used to relax and manipulate the underlying structure of the body, using hands (sometimes feet!) or mechanical means.
It can be used for relaxation, stimulation or rehabilitation of the whole body or part of it. It promotes suppleness of the muscles, improves circulation and reduces stress and tension.
