What are the Benefits of Getting a Swedish Massage?

The Swedish massage is a great massage to choose if you haven’t had a massage before. If you are unsure whether it would be beneficial for you to get a Swedish massage, below is a list of the benefits associated with this massage.

Reduces Stress: The atmosphere, down time, and hands-on attention you receive in this massage is sure to relax you, lowering your cortisol (stress hormone) levels. This in turn has its own set of benefits; reduced tension headaches, more energy, and better sleep. By reducing the tension and anxiety in your body, the Swedish massage can help to relieve depression.

Manages Pain:
Swedish massage is effective in the management of pain in conditions such as osteoarthritis and sciatic. Also, if you are suffering with cramps and muscle spasms, this massage therapy can focus on these areas to relieve the pain.

Increases Blood Flow:
Your massage therapist massages in a way that opens up your blood vessels and increases your blood flow. This means your blood circulation is improved which means your muscles are receiving more nutrient-rich oxygen. Increased blood flow also means your lymphatic system is being stimulated, which means waste passes through your body quicker.

Rehabilitates Muscle Injuries:
When blood flow is increased, more oxygen and nutrients are pumped into your tissues and vital organs. This causes injured areas to become more flexible and heal at an accelerated rate.

Increases Flexibility:
If your muscles are relaxed they have a much wider range of motion. A Swedish massage and regular stretching will help you avoid injuries and get more out of your periods of exercise.

Improves Immune System:
Along with reduced stress, lower cortisol levels also allow for your immune system to strengthen. This means you will be less likely to get sick and have to take off work or cancel your weekend plans.
