What Happens During a Swedish Massage?
A Swedish massage is considered by many as both relaxing and invigorating. There are four main moves during a Swedish massage: effleurage, petrissage, friction, and tapotement. These moves vary between smooth gliding strokes, kneading, rolling, deep circular movements to increase blood flow, and short alternating tapping. This variety releases relaxing hormones and increases blood flow to facilitate healing and increase energy and vitality.
The process takes between 40 and 90 minutes depending on the areas worked. Many people are so relaxed by the treatment that they can fall asleep. It really is that relaxing. Unlike a deep tissue massage, a Swedish massage does not hurt and is a great way to unwind mentally while the muscles in your back and neck also relax. A carrier oil that is mildly and pleasantly scented is often used as long as the patient does not disagree with particular scents.
This massage is the perfect gift to give to the person in your life who could use a little pampering and relaxing time, but is not used to chiropractic care or other massage treatments. Let us know your expectations going in, and we will make sure to make you as comfortable as possible as you get used to massage therapy.
How Can Chiropractic Care and Massage Help Improve Health?
If you have been injured, chiropractic care can help readjust your spinal alignment to ensure you heal properly without chronic pain or decreased mobility. This is just a base. If your injury requires pain management and/or physical therapy for healing, then chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, and a treatment plan that includes the tools you need to not only feel better in the short term, but also to heal and improve your health and mobility in the long term, will mean a much better outcome than if you simply pop some pain killers and wait for your body to heal on its own.
