If you have a motion restrictive condition like Sciatica or Osteoarthritis and suffering from chronic pain as a result, Swedish massage can be an effective method for managing that pain in a natural way.
Increases blood flow
Effleurage – a long, stroking motion in the direction of blood flow towards the heart – in order to open up your blood vessels and increase your blood flow. Increased blood flow means that your muscles are getting more nutrients and oxygen and your body is removing toxins more efficiently.
Rehabilitation for muscle injuries
Kneading and friction techniques are used to address any existing injuries, such as adhesions which occur when muscle tissues fuse together. Many people say that this technique, which relaxes layers of muscle, makes it feel as if the kinks have been worked out.
When your muscles are more relaxed, you’re able to experience a wider range of motion. A combination of Swedish massage and regular stretching eg yoga is a great way for anyone to avoid workout-related injuries and get the most out of their regular workout sessions.
