Swedish Massage

This is the most common type of massage among various massage therapy types. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, strokes, on upper layers of muscles. Massage oil, gel or lotion is used to protect the skin from irritation. Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. And it may even help after an injury. Massages are a great way to relax. A massage involves manipulating the muscles and joints to relieve stress or pain. This is achieved by relaxing tight muscles and promoting blood circulation.

Benefits of Swedish Massage

IMPROVED BLOOD CIRCULATION : Getting a Swedish massage can also be beneficial to your heart. A massage therapist manipulates the body’s soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels and uses slow rhythmic strokes that flow towards the heart thus improving overall blood circulation. Swedish massage may help reduce symptoms of depression, stress, and anxiety. Some of the symptoms that could be managed by massage therapy include joint pains, mobility issues, headaches, muscle tension, tightness and other chronic pains.

BOOSTING THE IMMUNITY: Massages are also known for boosting the immunity. This may help you to manage conditions like the common cold. Nerve stimulation: By applying pressure and manipulating the muscles, a Swedish massage helps to stimulate nerves located in different parts of the body. The nerves could be stimulated in a way that helps to manage pain and discomfort.

MOOD BOOSTER: Massages have been found to improve mood by promoting the production of dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin. These hormones act to stabilize your mood, helping you feel happy and positive. A Swedish massage could also act to reduce the production of cortisol, which is a stress causing hormone.

IMPROVING FLEXIBILITY: Swedish massage can help to relax your muscles and joints. This in turn will improve your range of motion, and muscle flexibility.
