The benefits of Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is one of the most popular modern holistic massage techniques. It uses tapping motions to stimulate the body’s circulation system leading to a variety of positive effects on overall health. Swedish massage also leaves the body feeling relaxed and the mind rejuvenated making it a great way to reduce tension and stress.

The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load. Swedish massage stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable.

Swedish massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has many other specific medical uses. Regular massage sessions are the best way to receive the healing powers of Swedish massage.
