Swedish massage is one of the most commonly offered massage techniques. It’s sometimes called a classic massage. The technique aims to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension.
Swedish massage is gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief.
Within the Classical Swedish massage, a mixture of strokes such as kneading, stretching, tapping, and rolling as well as different length strokes are applied to a patient. Circular hand movements are best utilized by a massage therapist to deliver optimal relaxation to the patient, and the utilization of knuckles are also used, very rarely since the goal is relaxation and comfort rather than recovery.
If you’re looking for relaxation and relief from tense, tight muscles, Swedish massage is probably right for you.
