Swedish massage is the style that comes to mind
when most people think about massage. It was developed in Stockholm a couple of centuries ago and is the most common
and best-known type form of bodywork performed today.
The goal is relaxing the entire body and this
is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Additional
techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching. Lotion
is often used to reduce friction and stimulate the skin.
Swedish massage is exceptional for increasing the level
of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
