Swedish Body Massage Nottingham
Swedish Massage Therapy
Swedish body massage Nottingham is a popular body massage that lasts approximately one hour. Swedish Massage therapy helps promote relaxation as well as help ease aches and pains.This is achieved by rubbing muscles with long strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Your body responds to Swedish Massage in two ways.
Firstly, there’s a physical effect on your body helping to reduce muscle aches and pains or increase joint mobility. Then there are the psychological benefits too of providing feelings of relaxation and reduced feelings of stress.
Your massage therapist may use oils and creams to gently nourish and massage your skin. Using massage techniques on the body which your therapist is trained to use your therapist can assess the areas where your stress and tension exist and gently massage those areas to help release the pressure.
Swedish Massage techniques used by your therapist can include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms as well as kneading, percussion like tapping bending and stretching.
A study conducted by the National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine found that volunteers who received a 45 minute Swedish massage felt significant decreases in levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
Volunteers also experienced increases in the white blood cells that are part of the immune system and a boost in the immune cells that may help fight off colds and flu viruses.
Swedish body massage Nottingham can therefore bring many benefits like relief from general pain, back pain, stress and tension, improved blood and lymph circulation and increased energy levels. It also helps with the release of endorphins.
To gain maximum benefit from Swedish Body Massage Nottingham, try to rest after the treatment. This helps your body’s natural healing process. Avoid eating a heavy meal in the 2 hours following your treatment and try to avoid tobacco and alcohol for at least 24 hours. Drink plenty of water as this will help flush away toxins. You may find that you get a good night’s sleep too.
