Swedish Massage
 

Considered the perfect balance of therapy and relaxation, Swedish massage is universally popular for its gentle yet effective results and benefits.  Swedish massage is the perfect “beginner’s massage,” providing gentle pressure and friction that soothe sore muscles and loosen tight joints.  Among its many benefits, Swedish massage effectively eases tension, wipes out stress and promotes deep relaxation.  For stubborn stiff spots, Swedish massage therapists can provide a bit more intensive massage to provide relief, but for chronic pain, it may be best to request a deep tissue massage, depending on the condition.

Swedish massage is performed on a massage table with the client undressed and draped in a sheet for comfort and privacy.  Using massage oils to lubricate the skin, Swedish massage consists of massage strokes that vary from smooth gliding to kneading, stretching and tapping.  The pressure and amount of friction used during a Swedish massage can range from light to firm, depending on the preference of the client and the goals of the therapist.  As with any massage procedure, the client’s comfort level is of the highest importance and clearly expressing touch and pressure preferences to the therapist can only enhance the overall experience and increase the effectiveness of the massage.
