Swedish massage helps you relax, increases your blood flow and lymphatic circulation, and strengthens your immune system.
What is Swedish Massage?
Swedish circulatory massage is one of the most commonly offered massage techniques. It’s sometimes called a classic massage. The therapy promotes relaxation by releasing muscle tension. This massage is gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief. Massage therapy may loosen up tight muscles caused by daily activities such as sitting at the computer or exercising. Swedish Circulatory Massage helps people who hold a lot of tension in their lower back, shoulders and neck.
What to Expect?
During a Swedish massage, therapists use kneading, long strokes, deep circular movements and passive joint movements. You will feel more relaxed after a massage because it will stimulate nerve endings and increase blood flow. In a traditional Swedish massage you will begin on either your back or your stomach and flip over at the halfway point. You can ask your therapist to spend more time on problem areas, such as your neck. In addition, you can ask your massage therapist to use light, medium, or firm pressure.
Swedish Massage provides many benefits. First, it helps you manage high blood pressure, chronic fatigue, headaches and depression. Moreover, massage therapy can help you with diabetes, stroke rehabilitation, Parkinson’s Disease and MS.
