If you’ve ever had a massage before, then you’ve probably heard of a Swedish Massage. Swedish Massages are one of the most popular and effective massage therapy methods. It focuses on relieving muscle tension and increased blood circulation while helping you achieve a state of total relaxation. But what are all of the benefits of a Swedish Massage, and what makes it different?
Take a look at some of the best benefits to help you decide if scheduling an appointment is right for you:
Decreased Stress. Swedish Massages can help reduce your physical and emotional stress by relieving muscle tension. You’d be surprised how much stress can manifest in different parts of the body, and with light to firm strokes, your massage will help decrease your stress level and promote relaxation.
Pain Management. If you struggle with pain from a chronic condition, then a Swedish Massage could help you manage your pain in a highly effective way. Just make sure you tell your massage therapist about your areas of pain or discomfort, so they know precisely where to target!
Increased Blood Circulation. Swedish Massage techniques will dilate the blood vessels and widen the membrane pores, improving your body’s blood circulation and delivering fresh blood to your muscles and organs throughout your body.
Improved Immune System. In addition to blood circulation, Swedish Massage techniques encourage the flow of lymphatic fluid, improving your immune system.
Increased Flexibility. Massage will elongate your muscles and reduce overall swelling, increasing your overall flexibility and ease of movement.
Improved Posture. Like flexibility, a Swedish Massage relieves tension and overworked muscles due to strain from prolonged sitting, standing, or injury. By reducing this tension, your posture can drastically improve.
Improved Sleep. By deep relaxation, you’re more likely to increase your serotonin levels, helping you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
