When wellness care is used in conjunction with massage therapy, both treatments work together resulting in a much faster recovery time for the patient. Massage therapy is an excellent method for improving overall health and musculoskeletal efficiency, as it has a number of beneficial effects on the body and the mind.
Massage therapy has been proven to assist in mending of a large number of conditions including:
- Back pain
- Sleep disorders
- Disc issues
- Muscle Spasms
- Pinched nerves
- Joint pain
Considered the perfect balance of therapy and relaxation, Swedish massage is universally popular for its gentle, yet effective results and benefits. Among its many benefits, Swedish massage effectively eases tension, wipes out stress and promotes deep relaxation. This type of massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, and improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Swedish massage is performed on a massage table with the client undressed and draped in a sheet for comfort and privacy. Using massage oils to lubricate the skin, Swedish massage consists of massage strokes that vary from smooth gliding to kneading, stretching and tapping.
The pressure and amount of friction used during a Swedish massage can range from light to firm, depending on the preference of the client and the goals of the therapist.
