Touch for Relaxation
Commonly Recognized Benefits of Swedish-Style Touch
ELIMINATES CELLULAR WASTE
Knowledgeable touch acts as a 'mechanical cleansing' to help move lymphatic fluids and hasten elimination of cellular waste and toxins.
IMPROVES MUSCLE TONE
Improved muscle tone helps prevent or delay muscular atrophy resulting from forced inactivity.
AN EXERCISE ALTERNATIVE
Invigorating touch can compensate in part for lack of exercise and muscular contraction in persons who because of injury or illness remain inactive.
Professional touch helps lessen inflammation and swelling in joints and can reduce swelling from illness or injury; thus alleviating pain and tissue damage.
DECREASED BLOOD PRESSURE
Relaxational touch increases blood flow and circulation, as it helps to dilate blood vessels and lower blood pressure.
