What is Swedish Massage
Swedish massage simply means “classic massage”. It is a classic treatment which represents the western standard for massage. The five main techniques used in Swedish massage – stroking and gliding; kneading; rubbing; tapping or pounding; vibration – are probably what spring to mind when you think about a “typical” massage.
What is Swedish massage good for
The various Swedish massage techniques are designed to improve your circulation, soothe your muscles and make you feel more relaxed.
Swedish massage uses softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage. This adjustment of pressure makes it an ideal massage for relaxation.
What are the benefits of having a Swedish Massage
Besides the calming benefits, Swedish massage is thought to be good for:
- Easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins
- Improving circulation by increasing oxygen flow in the blood
- Helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple
- Reducing emotional and physical stress
