Swedish Massage is most commonly used for relaxation because there is a lighter amount of pressure used, it also has its benefits.
Swedish massage techniques can be used to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscle with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Other than helping the body relax, a Swedish massage can increase oxygen in the blood, decrease muscle toxins, improve circulation and flexibility while easing a person’s body tension.
Swedish massage is proven to help decrease the level of the stress hormone cortisol promoting an overall feeling of relaxation. This is important because higher levels of cortisol in the body can have an impact on the immune system.
