Is A Swedish Massage Right For You?

Swedish massages are one of the most well-known and popular types of massage. But what is it? And what makes it Swedish? They were developed by Swedes Pehr Henrik Ling and Johann Mezger, and is unique in that it uses flowing strokes, circular movements and hand kneading to increase the circulation of blood flow throughout the body. These motions enhance blood flow to the heart and result in various physical benefits. Swedish massage is also known as classic massage in some parts of the world.

It is characterized by five basic massage strokes. They are known as:
  • Friction
  • Tapotement
  • Pestrissage
  • Vibration
  • Effleurage

Friction is the application of firm pressure in tight, circular motions to loosen the knots that can be found in muscles and nerves. Tapotement involves massaging the client's body from the edge of the hand. With Pestrissage, the practitioner applies a pressure to the underlying muscles in an effective way. Swedish massage therapists also use quick shaking movements to vibrate the muscles, which is known as Vibration. The light strokes applied by massage therapists to encourage the blood flow are known as Effleurage.

The therapists generally apply oil or cream to minimize the friction and provide smooth strokes for the client. Therapists create a relaxing and comfortable environment before starting the treatment. During the massage, the client should not be distracted by any external factor. That is why the massage therapist selects a quiet and calm environment with dim lighting. These external factors have the potential to augment the benefits of your massage.

Practitioners have a professional table that is specifically designed for the massage. It provides adequate support to all the body's muscles. First, the therapist will focus on your larger muscle groups, such as the back, legs, shoulders and neck.

Therapists usually start the massage at the shoulders, as this has been shown to maximize the effects of Swedish massage. Because Swedish massage is a full body massage, the therapist will provide the treatment to all muscles of the body.

There is no doubt that Swedish massage is so popular due to its effectiveness. It enhances blood circulation, which benefits all the organs in your body. It relieves the pressure that can be found in joints. It leaves the body relaxed and muscles looser. Swedish massage also reduces the body's overall stress level by manipulating hormone levels.

As with all massage, in order to get the full benefits of a Swedish massage, you will need to see a licensed massage professional.

Trouble Sleeping? Try a Massage

So, what are the benefits of a good night's rest? It may seem like a silly question but catching the right amount of sleep every night may be more important than you think. A good night's sleep helps to repair your body, maintains a healthy heart, reduces the effects of stress, improves your memory, controls weight gain and decreases the risk of diabetes.

Think of the things that you do every day which you can't live without. We're talking about daily bodily regulated activities like eating, drinking and breathing. Sleeping falls into this category and is as important. Sleep plays a pivotal role in wellness, physical health, longevity and emotional stability. You know that feeling you have after a great night's sleep? Not only do you feel refreshed but your thoughts are clearer, allowing you to make important decisions that you are faced with throughout your busy day.

For many people, however, sleep is not that easy to come by. Everyday millions of people around the world have trouble closing their eyes and drifting off to sleep. Sleep deprivation and insomnia is not only annoying - everybody has had one of those tossing and turning nights, counting down the hours until sunrise and another full day of stumbling bleary-eyed through work - but chronic insomnia has many other debilitating effects. Not only does a lack of sleep cause calamities like car accidents, industrial disasters, medical and occupational problems but it can also lead to depressive states, anxiety and memory loss.

Remedies for Insomnia

The fact of the matter is that a large of the American population suffers from insomnia. So, where are these millions of Americans turning in order to get a good night's sleep? Approximately 10 million people in the U.S use prescription sleeping aids and although sleeping pills may do the trick for a time they are most certainly not a long term solution.

If you are suffering from insomnia and are searching for insomnia treatments and remedies then it is best look into alternative, natural treatments. Massage can be an extremely soothing and beneficial treatment for those suffering from chronic insomnia. This natural, external, stimulating treatment has had a significant impact on insomniacs and has been proven to be a highly effective insomnia remedy.

How Does Massage Assist in Treating Insomnia?

While massage can relieve pain and tension, a popular complaint amongst insomniacs, it can also promote relaxation which can assist in restoring the sleeping patterns of insomnia suffers. Unwinding, de-stressing and relaxing the body can encourage greater relaxation in the body's muscles and soft tissues, providing a more lucrative, peaceful platform for deeper, undisturbed sleep.

Massage assists in oxygenating the blood, relaxing the muscles and promoting health and wellbeing around the body. This can aid in healthier, deeper breathing and in boosting the immune system. In addition to the stimulating nature of the massage oils can also be used to stimulate relaxation and promote sleeping patterns. Lavender oil has long been noted as a fantastic insomnia remedy. This oil relieves pain, combats depressions and relaxes the nerves. Other beneficial oils include chamomile and rose.

More than half of the American population loses sleep as a result of anxiety and stress.

So next time you're laying awake at 2am in the morning, staring at your digital clock and wondering why you can't get to sleep while everyone else can, take comfort in the fact that you have more company than you think. However, if you'd like to increase your sleeping hours and combat chronic insomnia, consider natural remedies before turning to over-the-counter medication. Try a massage and promote relaxation and wellness around the body, and enjoy a healthy night's sleep.

Benefits of Facials Extend Beyond Spa Appointments

Just the mention of the word facial conjures up images of pampered treatments at a spa that leave the recipient calm, relaxed, and stress-free. While this is more than reason enough for many women to visit a spa, there are numerous health benefits of facials as well. No longer just an option for the wealthy, facials have become much more affordable and beneficial for skin, with many first-timers to spas maturing into steady clients who later cannot imaging living their lives without facial appointments.

Among the many types of facials, there seems to be something for every member of the family: classic women's versions, men's facials, and facials specialized for teens. Each one targets a specific type of skin, and offers the most customized treatment for maintenance, prevention, as well as addressing problem skin areas. While the various facials are intended for different clients, they all offer one thing in common in their results: healthier skin. In much the same way a woman's facial can address sensitivity, fine lines, and signs of aging, a man's facial eases irritation, and provides a deep cleansing - with both resulting in healthy, radiant skin. Not to be outdone, teen facials also offer enhancements in appearance by soothing redness and helping to prevent breakout-prone incidents.

Similar to getting a massage, a facial offers layers of benefits, not only outward, but also beneath the surface. The overall relaxation and relief of stress is immediately apparent after both a massage or facial; however, added benefits beneath the skin evidence muscles that are no longer tight, and pores that are no longer clogged. These in-common benefits are often the reason many spas offer combinations of both services - so that clients can receive the maximum benefits of both options, and leave with more mobility and flexibility in their steps and skin.

In times past, both massages and facials were considered commonplace events for the well off, and luxuries for nine-to-fivers. Today, many medical professionals extol the virtues of both, with chiropractors encouraging massage as often as dermatologists encourage facials. In fact, regular spa treatments often work hand-in-hand with physician-dictated courses of treatment, and serve to enhance overall health among patients. It's this type of win-win situation that has spas growing in clientele, with an increase in facial requests. When considered a medical benefit, most people would agree facials are the kind of medicine few people would refuse to take.
