Gentle Swedish massage techniques melt away stress and release tension from muscles. These techniques are deeply soothing to the central nervous system and actually switch the brain from “fight or flight” to “rest and digest.” This produces a change in the brain’s chemistry – stopping the release of damaging stress hormones and helping to detox the cells of those already present. This reduces the damage these chemicals cause in the body and creates a sense of well being and calm. In this way, Swedish massage reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested as part of a regular program for stress management.In addition, this technique also promote circulation, increasing oxygenation and hydration to the cells. This helps shorten recovery time from workouts and muscular strain. It stretches muscles, keeping them healthy and pliable and taking the strain off tendons which reduces tendonitis. These techniques can be used exclusively, but are often used in combination with deep tissue and other types of massage.
