Description

Swedish massage is what most people think of when someone mentions the word massage. In Sweden, this type of massage is called ‘Classic Massage’, which is an accurate name, given how well-known it is.

Swedish massage involves a variety of techniques designed to improve circulation, ease muscle aches and tension, improve muscle and joint mobility and create relaxation. These techniques include:

  • Effleurage – gentle gliding technique used on superficial muscles
  • Petrissage – kneading and squeezing of the deeper muscles and tissues
  • Tapotement – rhythmical movements and tapping performed with the edge of the hand or heel of the palm
  • Stroking – a very gentle gliding technique with only minimal pressure applied to the skin

Most of the massages I do involve some Swedish techniques.
