What is Swedish massage
A stimulating and relaxing body massage that originated in Sweden . Swedish body massage is the original massage technique involving a sequence of movements working deep and superficially into the layers of tissue.
Swedish Massage uses five basic techniques: effleurage (gliding, sweeping), petrissage (kneading, rolling, wringing), friction (warming), tapotement (percussion) and vibration (trembling).
Effleurage which consists of long, gliding, sweeping strokes and Frictions to warm the muscles and work deeply into the tissues which will help relieve tension and pain. A deeply relaxing massage which can help with the build up of tension that is caused by begin sat at a desk or computer for long periods of time , going to the gym more that twice a week playing sport or the general build up of stress from daily life.
The petrissage techniques is the use of kneading, rolling, wringing and lifting strokes, which help free up knotted and bound muscles and soft tissue, stimulate nerve endings, and aid in increasing circulation, that in turn promotes cell repair and regeneration. promoting deep relaxation in the tissues and muscles so leaving you feeling deeply relaxed and stimulated .
