Welcome to Swedish massage in London
What is Swedish massage?
The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles.
Swedish massage helps flush the tissues of harmful deposits such as lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes – improving recovery time from muscular strain.
Swedish massage also stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable, and stimulates the skin and sooth the nervous system at the same time.
What are the benefits of Swedish massage?
Swedish massage not only feels exceptionally good, but is relaxing and invigorating.
Swedish massge helps the nerves, muscles, glands, circulation, and promotes our general health and wellbeing.
As a treatment Swedish massage helps reduce stress, both emotional and physical, and is often suggested in a program for stress management.
The treatment is very sensitive to pressure and takes into account the delicate or tender areas of your body, so it should be comfortable and soothing rather than the deeper sports massage

Martin Buschman, Sports massage therapist in London.
Martin Buschman, Sports massage therapist in London
“I don’t believe in the painful-throughout type of massage. I think pain is a bad signal to send to the brain, it induces reflex reactions that are not going in the sense of purposes. Of massage. Though it can be painful at times, my main focus will be on tissues listening and giving attention to your needs, respecting thus your own sensibility.” “I know the body is organised in muscular chains. During a massage, the main focus is on the posterior one, as this is the chain causing the most suffering. Ultimately, my treatment aim to untie knots, soothe and lengthen this particular chain but also to create balance, symmetry and harmony.”
Martin Buschman has been working as a Sports & Remedial Therapist since October 2004 and in addition completed his Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Sports Therapy with the Active Health Group in July 2005.
