Benefits of Swedish Massage
Swedish Massage is beneficial to all; from the athlete to the elderly. Benefits include :
> Deep relaxation. Pressure on feet and legs is sedating, sometimes inducing hypnotic or altered states of consciousness.
> Releases points of tension in the body which block the natural flow of energy,
> inducing homeostasis, balance and harmony. Releases stress and increases energy. Increases flexibility and range of motion. Assists alignment and postural integrity of the body.
> Improves circulation.
> Strengthens the internal organs.
> Relieves pain.
> Improves neurological functioning and assists in relieving degenerative conditions associated with the aging process.
> Promotes inner peace and a quiet mind.
People will vary in their response to Thai Massage. A calm and relaxed client will benefit well, some finding a single treatment radically altering their perception of their own body, and therefore their sense of self. However, a tense, rigid client may need more than one or two sessions to feel the same benefits or achieve the same result.
