The Mind-Body Connection
Unobstructed blood flow and lymphatic system drainage are a key to maintaining the body’s defenses against illness. Focused on overall wellbeing, Swedish massage is a more physical approach to easing bodily pain and relieving physical and mental stress and tension.
If you seek ultimate bliss and relaxation, Swedish massage is the answer, thanks to its ability to relax both the body and the mind. A connection between your mind is essential for maintaining better physical health. A massage therapist will use an application of oil, herbs, balms, or heat to release stress and assist in your relaxation.
Research has been under way to establish a connection between Swedish massage and health. Many studies claim that the therapy helps in reduction in knee arthritis, lowering of blood pressure, relief from carpal tunnel syndrome and fibromyalgia symptoms.
Another study links the holistic therapy to lowering anxiety, depression, and severity of headaches.
The different techniques of Swedish massage include kneading to loosen muscles, stroking in smooth movements, rubbing with hands back and forth, and tapping with hands or fingers to prepare your body for healing for a healthier, more vibrant, and more energetic you.
