Total Body Relaxation Through a Massage

What You Need to Know About Swedish Massage

The need to relax and unwind is one of the most common reasons a person will look for a massage therapist. The Swedish massage is also known as a relaxation massage because it can effectively relieve stress and tension from your head to your toes.

Total Relaxation

One of the main benefits and main goals of the Swedish massage treatment is total body relaxation. The massage therapist will use a series of techniques that will manually knead and compress the soft tissues of your body. Your muscles and soft tissues will be loosened, and the tension they are holding will be released.

Blood Circulation

The Swedish massage can also promote better blood circulation. The therapist will massage your whole body from your head down to your legs. This manual stimulation will improve blood flow in all the areas of your body that are massaged. The oxygen saturation of your muscles and tissues will be raised, and this, in turn, will help facilitate the removal of metabolic waste and toxins from your body.

The Treatment

During the massage, you will be lying down on a padded massage table. You will be undressed, but a towel will be used to cover your body. This is the technique known as draping, and only the specific body part being massaged will be exposed. Usually, the massage starts with you facedown on the table. The session can last anywhere between 60 to 90 minutes, and it should be conducted only by a licensed massage therapist.
