Swedish Massage is the most common type of massage which involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light rhythmic, tapping strokes, on the topmost layers of muscles. These movements are known as Effleurage and Petrissage. These movements are combined with active or passive movement of the joints which relieves muscle tension. Swedish Massage can be both relaxing and energizing, and may even help an injury. Benefits of Swedish Massage are as follows.
- Loosening tight muscles and stretching connective tissues
- Stimulates blood flow
- Relieves stress and anxiety
- relieves muscle cramps, and decreases muscle fatigue
- Overall sense of relaxation
