Massage is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance function, aid in the healing process, and promote relaxation and well-being.
During Swedish massage, massage therapists use massage oils to facilitate smooth, gliding strokes called effleurage.
Other classic Swedish massage moves include kneading, friction, stretching, cupping and tapping.
The health benefits to Swedish massage include:
Reduction in tension and anxiety, so easing stress
Calming of the nervous system, therefore greatly aiding depression
Improvement of blood circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells
Stimulation of the lymphatic system, which carries away the body’s waste products and eliminates toxins
Prevention and relief of muscular cramps, spasms, aches and pains
Assisting pain management in conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, general neck, back and shoulder pain
