While it's generally regarded as the most common form of massage, Swedish massage involves a combination of five basic, long flowing strokes designed to stimulate the blood to move back to your heart and concentrates on the muscles and connective tissues of your body for improved circulation, relaxation, pain relief, and overall health maintenance and well-being. Swedish massage is also one of the less demanding techniques for our Chicago massage therapists to practice as it usually does not involve deep-tissue work, which means its a gentler form of massage. Our Chicago Swedish massage team works predominantly with your muscles and soft tissue. Some of the massage benefits you'll experience are that it reduces tension, soothes your sore muscles and draws your body into a state of relaxation. You'll also see decreased levels in one of your stress hormones called cortisol and an increase in the number of white blood cells which means your immune system will get a boost as well.
