Swedish Massage refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to the soft tissues of the body and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. It involves the use of kneading, stroking, friction, tapping, and vibration and provide relief from stiffness, pain and numbness.
An important purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. It can help to reduce emotional and physical stress and stretches the muscles, ligaments and tendons, keeping them supple. This technique is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology. It can be invigorating or relaxing, depending on each case. Swedish Massage also stimulates the skin and relaxes the nervous system.
