A Swedish Massage relaxes the hard-working professional
Swedish massage therapy is the most well-known and widely practised type of therapeutic massage—and for good reason. Swedish massage focuses on muscle relaxation, targeting superficial muscles and increasing blood circulation.
If you’re not sure if you should book a Swedish massage, then have a look at our list of reasons to get one.
Pain management. If you have a condition like sciatica or osteoarthritis and are suffering from mild to chronic pain, then Swedish massage can be an effective method for pain management.
Increased blood flow. The practice of Swedish Massage uses effleurage – a long, stroking motion towards the heart – in order to open up blood vessels and increase your blood flow.
Rehabilitation for muscle injuries. Your Therapist will massage by kneading any existing injuries. This technique relaxes layers of muscle, and aides in “working out the kinks.”
Increased flexibility. After your Swedish Massage, your muscles are more relaxed, and you’ll be able to experience a wider range of motion.
Reduced stress. Swedish massages are meant to assist in the reduction of stress (which we all definitely need). The massage aides in lowering the level of the stress hormone cortisol in your body.
Improved immune system. Another great benefit of reducing stress with a Swedish massage is that while lowering cortisol levels in your body, it allows your immune system to grow stronger, meaning, you will feel a lot happier and enjoy better sleep at night.
