Swedish massage therapy is one of the most effective and widely practiced therapeutic massages in the world. Being gentler and soothing than deep tissue or acupuncture massage, this massage is perfect for the people looking for relaxation and stress alleviation.
The massage therapist uses hands, forearms, or elbows to perform steps such as gliding, tapping, and kneading, stretching, and cross-friction strokes. Depending on the style and technique of the therapist, each Swedish massage session will last around 30 to 60 minutes.
Here are some notable benefits of a Swedish massage:
- Pain Reliever: Doctors believe that ‘Swedish massage’ is the best therapy to treat chronic pain and muscle spasms. The different techniques of the massage such as – effleurage, petrissage, rhythmic tapping, friction, and vibration can effectively enhance the entire recovery process. It also facilitates the optimum flow of oxygen to the muscles and thereby releases toxins like metabolic waste or lactic acid. In short, Swedish massage is an effective way to reduce muscle pain naturally.
- Better Immune System and Blood Circulation: To promote better blood circulation and prevent clogging, your massage therapist will use an effleurage technique – a long, stroking motion in the direction of blood flow towards the heart. This will also help you to lower down the cortisol levels, improve local circulation, and boosts your immune system. It is also effective in reducing symptoms such as torment, physical discomfort, migraine, emotional distress, and weakness.
