The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles.

Concentration on the head-sacrum-pelvis corridor, using light, direct finger pressure to relax the target area, thus the entire body, restoring flow of energy to reinstate physical, emotional and mental well-being.
