While a Swedish massage is ideal for relaxation, this type of massage also provides several other mental and physical benefits.
A Swedish massage is also called a relaxation massage. This type of massage utilizes a variety of modalities. For instance, it’s common that hot stones or reflexology be used. Based on your desire, the massage therapist can use a gentle, soft touch or a more restorative and firm touch.
There are five massage techniques used with a Swedish massage. However, based on a massage therapist’s personal style, the modality used, and the amount of pressure used, this type of massage will vary from therapist to therapist. What remains the same is that all therapists use lotion, rather than oil, for this type of massage. (Oils can make the body too slippery and can make it difficult to grip the muscle tissue).
Swedish massages provide a number of physical benefits, including a decrease in body pain, eliminating knots in the muscles, increasing circulation of the blood, and relaxing the muscles. It also allows the lymph system the ability to flush out metabolic waste. Mental benefits include a reduction in stress and a higher level of relaxation. This type of massage can also help you to sleep better, as well as a provide a boost to your immune system.
