The history of Swedish relaxation dates back to the beginning of the last century, when a Scandinavian athlete managed to independently recover from an injury sustained in fencing training. He managed to find the correct points on his arm, by the action on which he will heal the injured elbow. Since then, this recovery technique has been called Swedish relaxation. It is excellent for eliminating the consequences of various sports injuries, as it is the safest method in comparison with the same drug therapy. Swedish relaxation helps to strengthen joints, get rid of puffiness, spasms and fatigue, improve blood circulation. In addition, after the very first session, the nervous system is restored, the quality of sleep improves, and stress goes away. A Swedish relaxation session takes an hour on average. It begins with a gradual warming up and kneading, and then the master proceeds to a more intense effect on the desired area of the body, depending on the desired result and the available indications. Such relaxation is usually done when the patient is lying on a couch, placing his head in a special opening so that the spine takes the correct natural position.
In fact, Swedish relaxation is a classic relaxation, focused on more strength training of joints and individual parts of the body. The master monitors the patient's condition, his feelings, controlling the force of pressing. Unpleasant and painful sensations that may arise during the relaxation process indicate the presence of a problem, the solution of which may require several sessions. It is not recommended to do such relaxation on your own, since it is very important to follow the correct technique so as not to cause harm. It is advisable to complete the relaxation by taking a warm bath with sea salt, which will even better help to relax the muscles.
In many Moscow relaxation salons you can find Swedish relaxation services, but you need to make sure that you have a special license and professional training of the master.
