The benefits of Swedish Massage include:

  • Stimulates the circulatory system
  • Increases muscle tone
  • Helps to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and releases toxins from the muscles so they can be naturally expelled from the body
  • Helps to reduce recovery time from muscular strain by flushing out the tissues’ lactic acids and other metabolic wastes. This can make you feel fresher and more uplifted.
  • Stimulates movement of lymphatic fluid (as mentioned above)
  • Eases muscle pain
  • Improves sleep quality
  • Improves joint mobility
  • Boosts immune function
  • Improves mental alertness
  • Relieves stress
