Swedish Body Massage

The most common type of massage is Swedish massage therapy. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. And it may even help after an injury.


Four common strokes of Swedish massage are:

· Effleurage: a smooth, gliding stroke used to relax soft tissue

· Petrissage: the squeezing, rolling, or kneading that follows effleurage

· Friction: deep, circular movements that cause layers of tissue to rub against each other, helping to increase blood flow and break down scar tissue

· Tapotement: a short, alternating tap done with cupped hands, fingers, or the edge of the hand

Anyone who has problems from muscular strain will benefit from a Swedish massage. As the therapist relaxes the muscles the lymph system will have the ability to flush out all of the metabolic waste from the muscles. This will help you to heal faster. A carefully blended combination of Aromatherapy oils to enhance your treatment will be used throughout the treatment. Nut free oil is also available
