Swedish Relaxation Massage
A Swedish massage is a “soothing” and relaxing massage, not a “pressure” massage. A Swedish massage focuses on overall relaxation, circulation and reducing stress or tension.
Swedish massage technique includes gliding, kneading, tapping, stretching and cross-friction strokes. A licensed massage therapist uses these techniques to improve circulation, improve the flow of lymphatic fluid (a key component of the immune system) and relax muscles overall.
