Swedish massage therapy is the most well known and most widely practiced form of massage therapy. This type of massage focuses on muscle relaxation and helps increase blood circulation.
So what are the benefits?
If you suffer from conditions like Sciatica then Swedish massage can be an effective method for managing the pain associated with these conditions in a natural way. Be sure to notify your therapist about the most painful areas, so that she can be sure to target them, and help you to feel more comfortable during your day to day life.
Help with muscle injury
Your therapist may address any existing muscular injuries. They will do this by using techniques to relax layers of muscle to make it feel as though the massage therapist is “working out the kinks”.
When your muscles are relaxed, you’ll experience a wider range of motion. Swedish massage and regular stretching can help you to keep workout related injuries in the past, and help you make the most of your workouts.
Boost your immune system
Another fantastic benefit of Swedish massage is the boost it provides to your immune system by lowering your cortisol levels and allowing your immune system to grow stronger, which means spending less time fighting colds and more time doing the things you love.
So what are you waiting for? Swedish massage is a great way to treat yourself and the physical and mental benefits make it the perfect option for those new to massage, or for those looking for a complete massage experience.
