A Swedish Massage is the most common and best-known type of massage. When you picture a scene of some one receiving a massage, a Swedish Massage is probably the type of massage you are seeing. This is because the technique has been around for a very long time and people are constantly spreading the word about its benefits.
If you are hesitant on receiving a massage and/or have never received one before, this type of massage is perfect for you. A Swedish Massage is a full body treatment that often uses massage oils or lotions to reduce friction, increase comfort, and stimulate the skin. Various strokes are made to release the tension in the muscles. The strokes are made towards the heart in order to allow all of the body’s blood to flow to the heart.
Other techniques used in a Swedish Massage are circular pressure applied by the palms and hands, bending, stretching, and firm kneading. The back, legs, neck, and shoulders are all massaged and treated during this massage. A complete sense of relaxation mentally and physically is achieved and many health benefits come from this treatment. Benefits include decreased stress, increased level of oxygen in the blood, decreased muscle toxins, improved flexibility and circulation, and more.
