Swedish massage is the classic style of bodywork, the most popular method being practiced today, and it has served as a foundation for many of the massage techniques developed in recent years. Swedish massage is a scientific system of manipulations on the muscles and connective soft tissue of the body for the purpose of relaxation, rehabilitation, and health maintenance. It is comprised of five basic strokes and their variations: effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), friction (cross fiber), percussion (rhythmic tapping), and vibration.
A relaxing Swedish massage has the specific intention of moving body fluids (such as lymph and blood), nourishing cells, and removing wastes from cells, relaxing muscles and diminishing any pain. Swedish massage directly increases blood circulation, thus enhancing delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the cells of the tissues. It also increases lymph circulation, which speeds up the removal of metabolic waste and the by-products of tissue damage and inflammation. It is helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and promoting relaxation.
If you have the feeling of being stressed out, unable to sleep, feeling a sense of being overwhelmed or depressed then a relaxing Swedish style massage is right for you.
