Swedish Massage

What is Swedish Massage?

 

Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by working the muscles with a variety of strokes often in the direction of blood returning to the heart. These include effleurage, petrissage, friction, vibration, and tapotement all of which help to relax the body.

 
Why do people get an Swedish Massage?

 

Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

 

What to expect during a Swedish Massage?
 

Before and during your Swedish massage session, communication is encouraged with your professional massage therapist so that your massage is customized to your specific needs. In Swedish massage, the person to be massaged lies on a massage table and is draped with a towel or sheet. It is a full-body massage treatment, except in areas that are contraindicated or where the client requests not to be touched. Aromatic or unscented oil or lotion is used to facilitate the massage movements. Each session usually lasts 30-60 minutes. Depending on the client's preferences, a massage session may involve the use of several or all of the basic techniques.
