A Swedish massage is one of the most common forms of massage. The massage therapist will use soft, long strokes for kneading the muscle tissue. They may also use lighter, rhythmic, or tapping strokes. This type focuses on the top layers of muscles to help relieve muscle tension.
Massage techniques used in a Swedish massage include:
- Effleurage—a smooth stroke focused on relaxing soft tissue
- Tapotement—a short, alternating tapping motion
- Friction—deep, circular motions causing layers of tissue to rub together, increasing blood flow and breaking down scar tissue
- Petrissage—a squeezing, lifting, or kneading motion
Swedish massages may be better for people who are new to massage or sensitive to touch since it uses lighter pressure. It’s a good option for people looking to release muscle tension and soreness
Deep Tissue Massage
Sports massages can be focused on particular parts of the body, or you can ask the massage therapist to do a full body massage. This type of massage is best for athletes or people who do repetitive movements.
