Swedish massage uses long sweeping strokes, gliding, kneading, rubbing, tapping, and vibration. With softer strokes on the bonier parts of the body, and stronger strokes on the thicker muscle coverage, this adjustment of the pressure makes it an ideal massage for relaxation. These techniques are designed to improve your circulation, sooth your muscles and help you feel more relaxed.
Besides the calming benefits, Swedish massage is thought to be good for:
- Easing muscular strain by flushing toxins
- Improving circulation by increasing oxygen flow in the blood
- Helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple
- It is rejuvenation, mood-enhancing and energizing
