Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique, is one of the most popular types of kneads in the massage therapist's tool box. It uses long, connective strokes to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. It can also flush the tissue's lactic acid, uric acid, and metabolic wastes, speeding up recovery time from most common anvil-related injuries. Even if your body's in mint condition and still in its original packaging, Swedish massage also just plain feels good, especially when experienced in Integrated Massage Therapy Center's serene confines and accompanied by their friendly advice on how to keep yourself feeling loosey-goosey with nutrition and exercise.
