Increase Your Physical & Mental Health with a Swedish MassageJanuary 30, 2021
There’s no doubt this past year has been stressful. Not only has it caused stress due to social distancing, limiting our access to friends and family, monetary issues, and more, but it also has had an impact on our overall health.
Now is a great time to focus on you. At Rumors Salon & Spa, we offer a Swedish Massage that can be a benefit to both your physical and mental wellbeing. This therapeutic massage offers many benefits beyond muscle relaxation.
Pain management. If you suffer from chronic pain, Swedish massage is a natural way and effective way to manage your pain and alleviate other illnesses that can result from it.
Increased blood flow. Swedish massage utilizes long stroking motions directed toward the heart. This encourages blood vessels to open, ensuring that muscles are getting more of the nutrients and oxygen they need.
Rehab for muscle injuries. The kneading and friction that is offered in a Swedish massage help to mend existing injuries and allow your injuries to heal quicker.
Increased flexibility. When your muscles are relaxed you have a wider range of motion, giving you greater flexibility and safeguarding your muscles from an injury that can occur when your muscles are inflexible or stiff.
Endorphin release. Research has shown that massage can increase serotonin and dopamine in the body. These work together to improve not only your mood but also improves your overall emotional wellbeing over time. When you feel good, you tend to have more energy and feel happier, and you are more open to being more active.
Reduced stress. The combination of hands-on attention in a Swedish massage and our calming atmosphere in our massage rooms will lower the level of the stress hormone cortisol in your body. When stress is reduced, it can eliminate tension headaches, give you more energy, allow for a better night’s sleep, and improve your immune system.
- Support a healthy immune system. When you reduce stress, your cortisol level is lowered, allowing your immune system to grow stronger, keeping you healthier, and giving you more time to do the things you enjoy.
- Improve sleep. Increasing the serotonin levels in the body help you to fall asleep faster, go into a deeper sleep state, and stay asleep longer.
- Relieves headaches. Many headaches are a result of poor circulation or stress. Tension headaches can be relieved by Swedish massage since your stress level is lowered and your circulation is boosted.
