Swedish Massage techniques are used to rehabilitate injuries from accidents or repetitive strain. The benefits of massage include increased circulation in both blood and lymphatic fluid. This helps to decrease swelling from more recent or acute injuries, increase healing time after trauma and decrease heart rate and blood pressure.
