The Swedish massage is one of the more popular massage techniques. A New York Times article said that a 45-minute massage can help you experience a significant decrease in the stress hormone cortisol. This massage uses the hands, forearms and elbows to help stimulate blood circulation and increase relaxation while loosening up the tension in your muscles.
