Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology. It is a system of therapeutic massage and exercise for the muscles and joints, developed in Sweden in the 19th century and is one of the most popular massages available.
Massage has many important health benefits and can help you maintain physical, mental and emotional well being, especially when it is part of your regular wellness routine. A massage can calm the nervous system, reduce stress and anxiety and improve blood circulation. It stimulates the lymphatic system, which carries away the body’s waste products and toxins. It also helps prevent and relieve muscle cramps and spasms. That’s what makes it an effective form of pain management for those with arthritis and sciatica.
