The basics of Swedish Massage
Swedish massage is the most popular and widely known kind of therapeutic massage and is also famous as circulatory or relaxation massage.
The primary aim of Swedish Massage is the relaxation of the body and stress relief. Nevertheless, there is a long list of advantages.
This kind of massage combines techniques as effleurage (long fluid), petrissage (kneading), friction and tapotement (percussion) strokes to calm the nervous system and get to the place of deep relaxation. The therapist will use the fingers, hands, fists, forearms and elbows and simultaneously will vary the patient’s muscle receptors. The therapist will as well provide a combination of feelings, which will affect the sensory receptors to calm the nervous system and bring the body to a place just before falling asleep.
The purpose of this massage therapy is movements going one after another covering back, glutes, legs, arms, hands, abdomen, face and feet.
The therapist will apply a variable pressure during the Swedish Massage that will depend on the client preference to get their alpha state of mind.
The pressure will not be light, nor so deep so it can keep you from relaxing. The Swedish Massage can be deep but never as a Deep Tissue due to its aim of encouraging relaxation.
Receiving Swedish massage will help the body to heal itself because of the physical manipulation and stimulation of the circulatory and lymphatic systems. The Swedish Massage will help to eliminate toxins in the body and to get a high level of relaxation, which makes your body to behave as an open, receptive vessel in which healing can more rapidly occur. Here are just some of the main benefits of Swedish massage:
- Stress decrease
- Back and neck pain relief
- Improves sleep
- Flexibility and range of motion improvement
- Reduction of muscle spasms
- Depression decrease
Research has brought evidence that Swedish Massage might convey benefits for conditions such as symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, immune system issues, migraines and severe headaches, blood pressure, fibromyalgia, joint mobility, muscular tension as well as mental health benefits.
