Bodywork » Swedish Massage

Also known as European massage, this type of massage uses a system of long strokes, kneading, friction, percussion and may include stretching and/or strengthening exercises.

Swedish massage promotes general relaxation, increases circulation of blood and lymph, and relieves muscle tension. Oils or lotions are used to reduce the amount of friction on the skin. Swedish massage is the most effective technique for reducing and alleviating stress.
