Also called a classical massage, performed to energize the body and improve overall health. The benefits go far beyond relaxation; decreasing muscle toxins, improving flexibility, improving circulation, and increasing blood oxygenation. Massage oil or lotion is used to protect the skin from friction while applying pressure to meridian points along the body, manipulating the muscles and joints to relieve stress or pain. Long, soft, kneading strokes are used to release tension from the deepest muscles of your body.
This massage is perfect if you have too much lactic acid in your muscles - you may feel soreness, lethargy, pain caused by inflammation, muscle weakness, and other symptoms particularly after a heavy training session or competition. This massage helps your lymphatic system flush these intramuscular toxins from your muscles so you can get back to your daily routine asap.
Check out some of the benefits below to learn why a Swedish massage might be a great choice for you:
Pain Management: for example if you have a condition like sciatica or osteoarthritis and are suffering from chronic pain as a result
Rehabilitation for muscle injuries: to assist with the treatment of scar tissue and heal injuries, DOMS and releasing muscle toxins.
Increased flexibility: Swedish-style massage improves flexibility because your muscles are stretched and your joints are put through their full range of motion during the massage
Increased circulation: supporting your lymphatic system
Reduction in stress, anxiety and depression
Improved immune system: One other great benefit of reducing your stress with a Swedish massage is that the lower cortisol levels allow your immune system to grow stronger, meaning that you’re less likely to get sick.
