Swedish massage therapy is one of the best known massage therapies in practice today. One of its primary goals is to relax the entire body by rubbing the muscles in long gliding strokes in the same direction as blood returning from the heart. However, the benefits of Swedish massage are not limited to relaxation; it’s exceptionally beneficial for increasing oxygen levels in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, increasing circulation and improving flexibility all while easing tension throughout the body. The rhythmic kneading can also help with muscle recovery as it stimulates blood flow to the massaged area, allowing your joints and muscles to recover more quickly, without the need for medication.
Those who receive Swedish massage can attest to the numerous benefits it provides, with many choosing to have it performed on a regular basis in order to improve their overall health and well-being. We’ve been offering Swedish massage for several years and have seen the benefit it provides to our clients.
