Swedish Massage..The term "Swedish Massage" refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.
Swedish massage was developed in the 1700's by a Swedish doctor named Per Henrik Ling.
There's no denying the power of regular massage. Despite the lovely adjectives we assign to it! Such as pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic, or the reasons we seek it out, maybe a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management, massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your overall health care regimen.
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stressrelated. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally,than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether inthis fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt,help manage stress. This translates into:
• Decreased anxiety.
• Enhanced sleep quality.
• Greater energy.
• Improved concentration.
• Increased circulation.
• Reduced fatigue.
Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.
Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles.
