Swedish Massage

Picture

Swedish massage is effective because of its technique – consisting of gentle, kneading massage that moves from shallow to deep areas of the body and stimulating circulation. This can be especially helpful for people who are exposed to stress daily. Swedish massage will noticeably loosen muscles, alleviate pain, and increase circulation – all significant benefits for anyone. You don’t however have to be living a stressful life to enjoy the benefits of Swedish massage.

In many cases, Swedish massage has replaced the other massage forms in terms of frequency of use. Whereas previously many visitors to spas around the country were athletes and sportsmen who may have traditionally sought out a massage that simply relaxed sore and tired muscles, now a diverse populace seeking a massage that also stimulates, conditions, and heals is seeking out massage treatment.  

Those suffering from certain conditions may also find Swedish massage to be quite therapeutic. Sufferers of chronic pain, fibromyalgia, oedema, muscle cramping, and even carpal tunnel syndrome, may find significant relief from Swedish massage. The variety of pressures that can be exerted on different groups of muscle tissue stimulates circulation in areas of pain. 

Swedish massage therapy, in particular, focuses on relaxing muscles and connective tissues. It is particularly helpful for people that have chronic tightness and stiffness. When chronic muscle tension or injury is present, adhesions are formed in the muscle tissues, tendons and ligaments. Adhesions can inhibit circulation, limit movement and cause pain. Swedish massage works to gently break down these adhesions and restore movement. When Swedish massage is paired with intent and presence, the benefits are remarkable.
