When talking about massage therapy, most people commonly think of Swedish Massage. It is in fact one of the most popular modalities practiced today, because it is intended to relax the entire body.

The Swedish modality uses a series of specific techniques to create a relaxing and beneficial experience.

  • Long, gliding strokes on muscles to improve circulation and help break up trigger points
  • Gentle kneading of muscles in problem areas 
  • Palm friction rubbing to stimulate warmth in a muscle group
  • Using fingertips to loosen stiff muscles

It is an effective and gentle therapy for stress and pain management.

Benefits of Swedish Therapy

During your session, your massage therapist will focus on muscle relaxation by targeting superficial muscles closest to the skin, eliminating tightness and improving blood circulation through soft, kneading strokes.

Massage Rx LA offers a customized massage experience to suit your health and wellness needs.

Before your therapy session begins, please inform your therapist of any pre-existing medical conditions or areas of immediate concern.

There are many noticeable benefits to Swedish Massage Therapy, but the most prominent include:

Stress Management

By relaxing the body, you are in turn better able to relax the mind. Recent studies have shown that Swedish Massage can help relieve tension headaches, improve your quality of sleep, and ease symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Improved Circulation

The long soothing strokes on the muscles are done in the direction of the heart to imitate the natural flow of circulation in your body. This helps to open up your blood vessels, allowing for an increase of nutrients and oxygen to reach your muscles while more effectively removing toxins from the body.

Pain Management

Pain relief is at the core of Swedish Massage. The improved circulation and muscle relaxation will help soothe the pain from an injury, or make living with a chronic pain condition more bearable.

Immune System Boost

While you relax during a Swedish Massage, the body and mind decrease the production of cortisol, allowing your immune system to grow stronger. It can also help reduce your chances of getting sick, allowing you to focus on doing all the things you love!
