Swedish Massage is one of the most commonly used modality among Massage Practitioners. It uses a combination of smooth gliding strokes, kneading (petrissage) and friction which both energize the circulatory system and relax the muscular and nervous systems. Research on the effects of Therapeutic Swedish Massage have concluded that receiving a massage after exercising leads to fewer damaged muscle fibers, less swelling, and a lower number of white blood cells indicating that massage accelerated the healing process and reconditioned the muscles much faster than they would have with just rest.
Swedish Massage is also excellent for sedentary lifestyles, which include much of our elderly population, wheel chair bound individuals, and office workers all of which lead to sluggish blood flow and slower metabolism. We are naturally designed to use our bodies to their full potential on a daily basis, but most of us find ourselves unable to maintain this for extended periods of time. Swedish Massage will create a pumping action similar to that one would create while exercising (although massage is not to replace your daily exercise routine). The increased blood flow to all parts of the body will also dislodge toxic residues that build up within our muscle and organ tissues, which is why it is very important for the receiver to increase their water intake following a Massage session to help the body filter out all toxins and chemicals that have now been released into their system.
