SWEDISH BODY MASSAGE

Swedish massage is the most popular type of massage. It involves the use of hands, forearms or elbows to manipulate the superficial layers of the muscles to improve mental and physical health. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of the massage.

 

Swedish massage is very effective at relieving anxiety and is often used to help alleviate the symptoms of stress and depression. It’s impossible to feel stressed during and after a Swedish massage. The pressure applied during the massage relaxes tight muscles and relieves tension. The stimulation to the skin is deeply relaxing, and it is common to feel a deeper sense of connectedness with your body during a Swedish massage. You become more aware of the muscles of your body as they are massaged, and this helps clear the mind of anxiety and dissipate depression. Swedish massage also promotes healthy sleep, which is one more way it helps the body heal itself. Whether insomnia or poor sleep is related to depression, anxiety, the onset of aging, or illness, Swedish massage can promote better sleep. This in turn can support the healthy function of the immune system, relieve anxiety and depression, and support energy levels.
