When most people think about body massage, it’s usually the Swedish style and technique that they’re most familiar with. Swedish massage works to relax the body, improve circulation and release toxins from the muscles through firm pressure and long strokes. From Swedish massage, most people understand the method of massage that breaks up muscle “knots” and relaxes them.
Swedish body massage is also one of the most healthful types of massage, because the massage therapist rubs the muscles in the direction of the blood returning to the heart within the body. This process actually helps to increase the amount of oxygen in the blood, making the individual feel more energized and extending the relaxation and circulation benefits of the body massage.
Swedish massage is especially relaxing, and has been clinically proven to reduce levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, and increase white blood and immune cells. Because of this, many massage therapists and blended massage techniques incorporate the Swedish style in order to promote deep relaxation and to remove tension.
During a Swedish body massage, it’s best to remove your clothing so the therapist can better respond to your muscles and provide the best massage to your body. Swedish massages generally last for an hour or longer, and can be combined with 30 minutes or an hour of a foot massage, for maximum relaxation and muscle relief.
