Swedish massage is a blanket term for a number of pressure-related techniques for increasing blood flow in muscles that can stimulate the release of toxins associated with anaerobic muscle activity, stress, and environmental pollutants. By rubbing, pressing, and stroking the surface of the body, blood flow is actually increased while heart load is decreased. By keeping muscles, ligaments, and tendons supple and pliant, Swedish massage can not only releases stress and allows workouts to be more efficient.
Smell is one of our most basic senses, one developed and fine-tuned since our ancestors were single-celled organisms sampling chemicals in the water. A smell has the ability to reach past all the conscious levels of the brain, past even the reptilian nervous system to produce positive effects at the cellular-chemical level. The use of aromatic oils as a part of massage can help stave off stress-related illness or depression while improving the health of skin and muscles.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a technique that goes beyond just working the muscles and blood vessels at the surface to realigning deeper muscles and connective tissue. Not only is it effective at relaxing the body and preventing illness, in some cases can actually provide real curative effects for people suffering from:
- Chronic Pain
- Muscle tension
- Soft tissue or repetitive strain injuries
- Bad posture
- Limited mobility
Deep tissue massage can be a positive supplement to more traditional medicinal techniques for treating these problems.
Hot Stone Treatments
In hot stone massage therapy, many of the same techniques are used as in Swedish massage. However, the hot stones have two important benefits:
- The heat of the stone encourages muscle relaxation
- The weight and hardness of the stone can make manipulation of the muscles and blood vessels more effective
After your hot stone massage, you will feel deeply relaxed and energized.
