Considered the “traditional” modality of modern massage, Swedish massage has simply lasted the test of time thanks to the great benefits of this healing technique. If you have ever had a massage, chances are you have experienced at least some form of Swedish massage.
The Swedish modality has one main focus: relaxation. However, through soft, long strokes and touches of effleurage, petrissage, friction and tapotement, Swedish is also therapeutically beneficial by relieving muscle tension, increasing blood flow to critical areas and breaking down scar tissue. If you need a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension, or relief from pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well-being.
