The Swedish massage technique is the best known for generating a full body relaxation effect. The focus areas are usually the feet, legs, hips, back, neck, shoulders, arms and hands. Light to moderate massage pressure is applied.
A full body massage stimulates the nervous system to release endorphins that promotes better sleep, regular menstrual cycles and reduce impulse cravings. Massage also increase vasodilation, which pumps more blood and oxygen to your muscle and organs. Tense muscles retain blood and lymph fluid, and by promoting better blood flow, muscle tension can be reduced.
