A Swedish massage is designed to relax the entire body through five major massage techniques viz: Effleurage (light stroking and gliding); Petrissage (rhythmic kneading or squeezing to compress soft tissues of the body.); tapping (a focused rubbing technique applied on specific areas); vibration (loosing and relaxing the body via conspicuous shakings); and Tapotement (applying consistent tapping on the body). It uses light-to-firm pressure in a treatment that focuses on circulation and working the soft tissues of the body.
Swedish massage remains one of the most widely used types of massages and consists of a series of maneuvers performed mainly on muscles and joints. It was developed by a Dutch physician, Johann Georg Mezger while studying the effects of some French massage techniques on physical healing; and later used by the Swedish medical pioneer, Pehr Heinrick Ling (1776-1839) to enhance the performances of athletes.
Trying this massage type for the first time is likely to help you through numerous scar tissue and adhesions, leaving you feeling relaxed.
