Swedish massage represents a general massage system that uses a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles and increase circulation.
Swedish massage works by applying deep pressure to muscles and bones, by rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood towards the heart.
What are the benefits of Swedish Massage?
A Swedish massage is a relaxing and invigorating experience that increases oxygen flow in the blood and releases toxins.
By using gentle, but firm pressure, a Swedish massage can:
– improve circulation
– ease muscle aches
– reduce muscle tension
– improve flexibility
– create relaxation
Swedish massage stimulates the skin, the nerves, muscles and glands, while promoting health and well being.
When used for injuries such as muscle strain, Swedish massage shortens recovery time by flushing the tissues of uric acid, lactic acid, and other metabolic waste.
Swedish massage increases circulation without increasing heart load, and stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable.
A Swedish Massage is excellent for reducing both physical and emotional stress and can be used as part of a stress management program.
