Benefits of Swedish Massage
Swedish massage helps the body to relax, reduces anxiety and gives the recipient a sense of wellbeing.
Muscle spasms, pain and tension are reduced, along with any swelling which has built up due to fluid in the tissues.
Regular Swedish massage helps oxygen flow through the body and stimulates the lymphatic system, helping to eliminate toxins and metabolic waste. This in turn helps muscles to recover more quickly after exercise.
During the massage, muscles are manipulated using long gliding strokes. Starting gently, to warm the muscles, the strokes become deeper and techniques such as rolling and kneading the skin, finger circles, vibrations and gentle tapping and cupping are also used.
Most clients require extra work around the shoulder area and upper back where knots have often formed causing aches and pains.
Swedish massage helps to relieve built up tension of both the body and mind. It is highly recommended for anyone who is feeling run down or on the verge of depression.
The relaxing effects of the massage also help people to sleep better, which in turn promotes improved health.
