When most people say massages, they think of Swedish massage because it is the most common form of massage practiced in the West. Spa, fitness clubs and even beauty salons usually offer Swedish massage as one of their services.
Swedish massage therapy was developed by the Swedish doctor Par Henrik Ling in the late 19th century and involves the use of hands, forearms and knees to work on superficial muscles. It is a massage for relaxation, increased oxygen supply to the body, and release of the body from toxins.
The purpose of Swedish massage is to relax the body by massaging muscles with long, smooth movements that follow the direction of the blood which then returns back to the heart. Lonsions and oils are often used to reduce the friction between your body and the therapist’s hands and to stimulate the skin. These movements will help increase oxygen levels in the blood, relieve muscles of toxins and waste products and increase overall flexibility while reducing tension.
Swedish massage is best known for helping people to relax and for recovering tired or injured muscles. Regular Swedish massages improve the circulatory system, which means that your muscles, tissues and other parts of your body receive more oxygen than they normally receive on a daily basis.
It also stimulates the lymphatic system and helps the body get rid of the toxins stored in it and help strengthen your immune system. Removal of these toxins and metabolic waste shortens the recovery time after intense exercise.
Your nervous system also benefits from a Swedish massage, which is why it is so closely linked to relaxation and pampering. In fact, regular massage is often recommended as part of an overall stress management program.
