Swedish/Relaxation Massage

Swedish massage, also called relaxation massage, is probably the style that comes to mind when most people think about massage. One of the primary goals of Swedish massage is to relax the entire body.

It concentrates on the superficial layers of the muscles for improved vascular and lymphatic circulation. It aims to relax, improve general wellbeing, reduce mental stress and general body tension. It is an excellent treatment for stress management.

Swedish massage is comprised of seven basic strokes – effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (percussion), friction (rubbing), vibration, rocking and compression – applied with a systematic sequential flow towards the heart. Speed of delivery is slow and pressure is generally light to moderate.
