It is the main base and foundation for other types of massages, such as deep tissue massage, relaxing massage, sports massage, lomi-lomi massage, and aromatherapy massage.

I guarantee: you will get my best professional massage services and your experience will be unforgettable.
Benefits of Swedish Massage by Habileny
One of the main goals of the Swedish massage by Habileny is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But my Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage by Habileny is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Swedish massage significant decreases the level of the stress hormone cortisol, as well as arginine vasopressin-a hormone that can lead to increases in cortisol. It also increases in the number of lymphocytes, white blood cells that are part of the immune system, and a boost in the immune cells that may help fight cold and the flu.
The strokes of Swedish Massage by Habileny relax individual muscles, while the overall experience eliminates mental stress. They also replicate the movements of the circulatory system. By performing the strokes toward the heart, Swedish massage by Habileny drains metabolic waste from the limbs of the body. Some of the strokes used in Swedish therapy increase blood flow, which further quickens the removal of bodily waste. Mental benefits of my Swedish massage by Habileny include the following:
improved sense of well-being
increasements in ability to concentrate
total improvement in length and quality of sleep
significant relief of stress, depression, anxiety and irritation
Swedish Massage by Habileny is a great tool for Pain Relief. It is used as an integral part of pain management protocols for sports injuries and chronic pain. Swedish massage by Habileny sessions can target specific areas of pain like a sprained ankle, or they can be used to help manage the chronic pain that comes with conditions like arthritis. By using strokes that improve circulation and increase body-wide relaxation, massage by Habileny can help make many painful conditions more bearable. I personally always relay on Swedish and sports massage while competing in NPC shows.
Over the past few decades, a variety of studies have linked Swedish massage to a number of huge benefits, such as reduction in knee arthritis, easing the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, lowering blood pressure, boosting immune system function, helping to mitigate the symptoms of fibromyalgia, reducing headaches and anxiety.
Unlike strictly pressure-point styles of massage like Shiatsu massage by Habileny or stretching techniques such as Thai massage by Habileny where I manipulate you while on the floor, Swedish massage by Habileny is designed specifically to enhance circulation and blood flow to the large muscle groups and promote health of your body.
And even more benefits:
Swedish massage by Habileny can be helpful with a number of other physical challenges, such as reduction in scar tissue by physically manipulating the fibers of the tissue, allowing the scar tissue to be successfully reabsorbed into the skin. Additionally, it can aid with lymphatic drainage, where the long strokes of my massage technique help move fluids successfully out of clogged areas. Swedish massage by Habileny is a way to reduce constipation or digestive upset; since the increased circulatory benefits and relaxation of the abdominal and lower back muscles can help relieve symptoms.
How I do Swedish Massage by Habileny.
Swedish massage can be gentle and slow, or bracing and vigorous, depending on your personal preference and what we are trying to achieve. Massage by Habileny techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms.
In my massage by Habileny, I lubricate the skin with massage oil and perform different massage strokes. These movements warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually breaking up muscle "knots" or adhered tissues, called adhesions. Swedish massage promotes total relaxation, among other health benefits.
I usually start by laying you face down with your head in a u-shaped face cradle so your spine stays neutral. Generally, I start by working on your back, using various massage techniques. When I'm finished with your back, I work the back of each leg. When I am done with the back side, I hold the sheet or towel up while you turn over onto your back and scoot down. Then I massage the front of each leg, both arms, and generally finishes with your neck and shoulders.
Sometimes I work in a different order, depending on your preference. If you only have 60 minutes, you can also ask me to spend more time on a certain area. If the pressure is too light or too firm, you should speak up and always ask me to adjust it. I will always fallow your feelings when it comes to the right pressure.
The most common strokes of Swedish massage by Habileny are:
Effleurage: a smooth, gliding stroke used to relax soft tissue. Effleurage is the most common stroke in Swedish massage. It is a free-flowing and gliding movement towards the heart, tracing the contours of the body using the palm of one or both hands.
Petrissage: the squeezing, rolling, or kneading that follows effleurage. Pétrissage is a Swedish massage technique resembles kneading dough. It involves lifting, rolling, and squeezing the flesh under or between the hands. Pétrissage is designed to release muscle tension, improve blood flow, and increase lymphatic drainage.
Friction: deep, circular movements that cause layers of tissue to rub against each other, helping to increase blood flow and break down scar tissue. Friction strokes work on deeper muscles than the other techniques of Swedish massage. The friction technique is a pressure stroke and is the deepest that is used in Swedish massage.
Vibration: designed to release muscle tension in small muscle areas, such as those on the face or along the spine or joints.
Tapotement: a short, alternating tap done with cupped hands, fingers, or the edge of the hand. Tapping or tapotement and percussion, is a quick choppy rhythmic movement that has a stimulating or toning effect.
If you want deeper work and can tolerate more pressure to get relief from chronic muscle pain, it's better to book custom massage, spots massage, or deep tissue massage, which is another form of Swedish Massage by Habileny.
The Nudity Factor during Swedish Massage by Habileny.
During Swedish massage by Habileny you are generally nude underneath a towel or sheet. I uncover only the part of the body I am working on. This technique called draping. Draping allows you to be totally nude underneath a sheet or towel and feel relax, warm, and unexposed. It also gives me the freedom to massage all parts of the body without being encumbered by clothing. If the nudity gets you out of your comfort zone, you can keep your underwear on.
I will always provide the most comfortable and relaxed atmosphere during our massage session for your convenience. If room gets too hot or too cold, please let me know, so I can adjust the temperature. If for some reason you feel 60 or 90 minutes are not enough, you can always request more time during our massage session. I usually extend your massage time if you let me know in the beginning of the massage session.
