What is a Swedish massage good for?
It can help you relax, give you more energy and help after an injury. Swedish massage involves long, kneading strokes combined with rhythmic tapping strokes and movement of the joints. This type of massage targets the uppermost layer of muscles and aims to relieve muscle tension.

Top benefits of Swedish massage therapy-
● Pain management ; if you have a condition like arthritis and are suffering from chronic pain as a result, Swedish massage can be an effective method for managing the pain in a natural way. Talk to your therapist about your pain points.
● Decreased stress and increased relaxation; Many of us live demanding lives, stress can manifest in the body with increased muscle tension and pain. Stress can also manifest in the mind with increased worry or anxiety. Swedish massages help to clear the body and mind of unwanted responses to stress by calming the nervous system and relaxing muscular tension.
