The manipulation of the muscle helps blood flow through congested area, releasing the pressure also helps the blood to flow through to targeted areas. The gentle pulling and squeezing of the muscles also flushes out the lactic acid from the muscle and improves the function of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system operation is crucial for the removal of metabolic waste from the muscle and internal organs.

Lowering blood pressure during the massage also helps reduce the risk of developing anxiety and depression as well as controlling the levels of stress hormone in the body. Regularly getting Swedish massages lowers the risk of having a stroke, heart attack or even kidney failure.
