Swedish Massage E-mail

Swedish MassageThe skin's natural functions will be stimulated improving the condition of the skin and the warmth created will help relax the body physically and mentally. Body massage originated in Sweden and this is the original massage technique involving a sequence of movements working superficially and deeper into the tissue layers.

The deeper muscles of the body are worked through a variety of long flowing strokes, kneading, and circular movements. Each massage is unique depending on your reaction to it. The principal strokes may be categorised as follows:

 Effleurage
Deeper massage by use of the thumbs
 FrictionCircular motions
 PetrissageKneading motions
 VibrationRapid shaking
 TapotementRhythmic tapping, using the edge and heel of the hand

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Movements such as effleurage work over the skin with the palm of the hand producing relaxation, whereas movements like petrissage work deeply. Petrissage movements such as wringing and kneading will help to relieve tension promoting deep relaxation in the tissues and muscles. As no two people are alike, the body massage sequence will always be adapted to the client's needs.
