Swedish Massage

 Swedish massage is very slow and 

gentle. Basic techniques for a traditional Swedish massage are effleurage, petrissage, tapotement, friction, 

vibration and Swedish gymnastics.

A combination of kneading and friction is used for the more superficial layers of the muscle tissue, and can combine active and passive movements of the joints. One of the primary goals of  Swedish massage techniques is to relax the entire body.

 

  • Long, sweeping strokes over a muscle help to break up trigger points

  • Friction - stimulates warmth, brings blood into the area

  • Kneading the muscle helps to get deeper into the muscle tissue

  • Tapping with cupped hands - facilitate relaxation

  • Vibration or shaking a muscle back and forth -  loosens up the tight area

A combination of these basic movements helps:

That kind of  massage is very beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing metabolic waste, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
