The Benefits Of Swedish Massage
Today, Swedish massage is used above all for its relaxing, toning and draining effect. Moreover, for its action on the hemolymphatic circulation it is also useful in the prevention of cellulite.
Among the main benefits that basic Swedish massage can bring are:> More healthy and radiant skin: a massage improves the skin in terms of brightness and beauty thanks to the elimination of dead cells and stimulation of the pores.
> Relaxation: each type of massage allows the person to enter a state of relaxation
> Relaxation of muscular tension: massaging muscles loosens tensions and muscular contractions improving athletic performance
> Lymphatic stimulation: during the treatment there is a movement of liquids that leads to the elimination of waste that accumulates in the body. The result is an improvement of the immune system and a regenerating effect able to counteract inflammation and edema.
At the end of the treatment, you will feel full of energy and reinvigorated.
Swedish Massage Origin
Swedish massage, also known as classic massage, is a type of massage of Western origin, invented in the eighteenth century by the Swedish physician, physiotherapist and gymnast Pehr Henrik Ling and was later formalized by the Danish physician Johan Mezger. Swedish massage is considered by many to be the basis of Western massage, as well as its originator. In fact, the Swedish creator, Dr. Ling, was the first to organize and lay the scientific foundations of Western massage, drawing inspiration from the oldest Chinese oriental massage and elaborating it thanks to his skills as a physician and physiotherapist. These bases will then be further formalized by Dr. Mezger, a scholar of Ling’s work.Precisely because of its being at the root of modern Western massage, Swedish massage is a starting point for all other techniques.
Swedish massage is a complete massage that is performed on the whole body while giving the freedom of maneuvers that can be performed on individual muscular areas.
The Swedish massage is received by lying down on a special bed, with the aid of oils that promote the flow of hands on the body of the recipient.
Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers or anyone who likes a deeper, more targeted treatment. The techniques of the sports massage focus on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive movements and areas of the body that hold significant tension. One of the key benefits of Sports massage therapy compared to other modalities is its ability to target muscle-tendon junctions.
