Swedish massage is one of the most widely recognized styles of massage therapy. It uses five types of long flowing strokes that vary from light to vigorous in intensity to increase blood and oxygen flow to muscles and joints.
This style has been shown to be effective in reducing back and joint pain. It improves function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. One clinical study reports a reduction in salivary cortisol indicating its role in management of stress and improvement in mood in patients.
Nature’s Vessel uses Swedish massage as part of an integrative massage approach that is effective for our clients.
