This massage imitates the movements of the circulatory system and so has a stroking direction towards the heart in the direction of blood flow. The body is able to knock out more toxins when the blood flow is increased and thus enables us to take in more oxygen. The flow of blood is enhanced since a Swedish massage triggers the lymph vessels. A Swedish massage drains out metabolic waste from the body as well.
2. Trims the chances of digestive issues
A lot of massages are particularly known to improve digestive symptoms but people rely on Swedish massages to cut down these issues. In a Swedish massage, the therapists deliver strokes and hand motions all over the body but particularly around the lower back and abdominal area which helps in relieving the symptoms like an upset stomach and digestive issues. It makes the syndromes of an upset stomach bearable.
3. Improves your immune system
Conditions like stress and depression significantly decrease your immune system. They often occur when you have a hectic daily routine and demanding responsibilities. The Swedish massage relaxes your sore muscles and also heals you mentally. This massage lowers the levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) and also helps in lymphatic drainage. As the movements of hands gently move towards the areas of lymphatic drainage, it eases out the flow of fluids from the clogged spots. It helps in flushing out the toxins and thus boosting the immune system.
4. Helps in normalizing the blood pressure
It is a known fact that almost all types of massages lower the high levels of blood pressure. It helps in reducing cortisol levels. According to a study, getting consistent massages can not only reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure but also reduce trigger sources for depression, anxiety, tension, hostility and so on. Higher blood pressure puts extra strain on your arteries and your heart, which may result in a heart attack or stroke. To prevent all this, it is essential to regulate your blood pressure levels. And a Swedish massage is one of the best ways to do it. The gentle hand movements, deep strokes, fingertips reaching the pressure points, etc in a Swedish massage, lower the blood pressure levels.
