Swedish Massage is the most common type or modality of massage. It’s what people think when they hear the word “massage.” This technique uses specific strokes and varying pressures to release dysfunctional holding patterns in the muscle and tissues. Depending upon individual preference, pressure can vary from light to deep. It includes long gliding strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, and shaking motions.
Combined with passive and active movements of the joints this form of therapy will promote general relaxation, improve blood circulation, improve range of motion, and provide relief from muscle tension. It is effective for most ailments, because massaging the skin begins a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body.
