The Swedish Massage

The term “Swedish massage” refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying light pressure to the muscles and the bones, by and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of the blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage involves the use of effleurage, petrissage, friction, vibration, percussion, passive and active movements (bending and stretching). The Swedish massage focuses on increasing the oxygen flow in the blood and releasing toxins from the muscles. Other benefits include: improvement of circulation, an increased muscle tone, and a balance of the musculoskeletal system. This massage is recommended for people who have never had a message before.
