What is a Swedish massage?

If you have ever had a massage, chances are it was some form of a Swedish massage. Swedish massages are the most popular massages performed today. This technique is a full-body experience designed to relax and rejuvenate. It is worldly in nature, as it combines many different practices to create a massage experience that is very therapeutic and relaxing.

What does it include?

The four common strokes of Swedish massage are:

  • Effleurage – smooth, gliding strokes
  • Petrissage – squeezing, rolling or kneading
  • Friction – deep, circular movements
  • Tapotement – short, alternating tap

What are the benefits?

Swedish massage relieves muscle tension, increases blood flow and breaks down scar tissue. If you are experiencing chronic pain, this type of massage can be an effective way to manage that pain in a natural way. Swedish massage, as well as any massage,  is a great way to improve your health, both mentally and physically.
