Men and women of all ages and physical conditions seek out the benefits of Swedish massage. People rely on Swedish massage therapy to support good health and to manage a variety of health conditions. Swedish massage is used for pain management, to improve circulation and to help individuals recover from injury. It is even used as a form of therapy for anxiety and depression.
What other benefits does Swedish massage offer?
Swedish massage has been shown to reduce pain, improve circulation, ease joint stiffness, and increase range of motion. Because it can help tissues release uric acid, lactic acid, and other waste products, it assists in muscle recovery after strain. Swedish massage could be beneficial to those suffering from osteoarthritis and soreness from athletic training or muscle overuse, among others. It lowers stress levels and simultaneously stimulates and soothes the nervous system. Other specific medical uses exist for Swedish massage, as well.
Swedish massage also just feels good! It is both relaxing and bracing, and tones the nerves, glands, circulation, and muscles while increasing well-being.
