Swedish Massage is Considered to be the Benchmark for All Massage Techniques

Swedish Massage is a whole-body therapeutic massage treatment that works the soft tissues and muscles to help restore health – creating a calming and balancing effect on the nervous system.

The massage therapist will be taught five main types of massage techniques in a Swedish Massage: stroking and gliding; kneading; rubbing; tapping or pounding; vibration.

Unlike deep tissue massage, Swedish Massage therapy uses softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage. This adjustment of pressure makes it an ideal massage for relaxation.

Best known for soothing tight muscles and boosting well-being, Swedish Massage also offers a whole host of other health benefits, including:

Easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins
Improving blood circulation and blow flow throughout the body
Helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple and improving range of motion
Reducing emotional and physical stress
Easing back pain and chronic pain

Swedish Massage is one of the most commonly offered massage techniques. It’s sometimes called a Classic Massage.

The techniques aim to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension.  Swedish Massage is gentler than Deep Tissue Massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief.

The benefits of Swedish Massage go beyond relaxation. It can help increase the level of oxygen in the blood and improve circulation and flexibility, great for holistic and general emotional and physical well-being.

Swedish Massage may loosen up tight muscles caused by repetitive daily activities such as sitting at the computer or even excessive or extreme exercise. It can be very helpful for people who hold a lot of tension.
