Swedish massage is designed to improve circulation, soothe muscles and improve relaxation.
It uses five main techniques; stroking and gliding, kneading, rubbing, tapping or pounding, and vibration. Swedish massage is what you probably consider a ‘typical’ massage.
This form of massage helps to stimulate the skin and nervous system, and exercises the ligaments and tendons to keep them supple. The process can be incredibly relaxing, and is championed for its ability to reduce both emotional, and physical stress.
