Increased Blood Circulation
Effleurage helps to promote blood flow because of the long strokes on your body. Usually, these long stroking motions are directed towards the heart to increase blood flow as well as open up those blood vessels. Increased blood flow is essential because it means that your muscles are getting plenty of oxygen and nutrients. Your body cells are also able to release toxins that are dangerous when left in the body.
Flexibility and Swedish Massage
With countable sessions of Swedish massage, your muscles become more relaxed. With more relaxed muscles, you will be able to enjoy a broader range of motions and become more flexible. This works best if you combine the massage sessions with stretches. You will be surprised at how flexible you will have grown with time.
Last but not least, the other great benefit associated with Swedish massage is its ability to relieve one from pain. As the therapist relaxes your muscles with the strokes and blood circulation levels increase, your body relaxes, and the pain ceases. Through improved blood circulation, the toxins that had recently built up such as lactic acid are released as well. Swedish massage can be used to relieve pain that results from an injury as well as chronic pain that comes with several illnesses and conditions. A person who has arthritis may feel relieved by going for a Swedish massage. The ability of the massage to decrease pain has improved the overall health of patients by smoothening the recovery process.
