Its a true Massage

A Swedish massage is what most people think of when they think of a massage. It’s a true massage. It involves the Massage Therapist actually rubbing (massaging) the clients body. Many modalities of massage don’t involve massaging the body and some modalities of massage don’t even involve touching the body. Swedish massage is often to called a “feel good” massage. 

There are four strokes in Swedish massage: effleurage, petrissage, friction and tapotement. Effleurage is the long flowing strokes, petrissage is the kneading strokes, friction is used to generate heat and bring blood to the surface, and tapotement is the hitting type strokes. The aim of a Swedish massage is to relax the tissues of the body, relieve stress and improve circulation. Most all Massage Therapists incorporate deep tissue work where needed, with their Swedish massage

A full body massage is nothing more than massaging the entire body. Many therapists leave parts of the body out, such as the buttocks, face, scalp, chest or abdomen. The effects of a full body massage will last much longer than a partial massage. This is because, in a partial massage, the tension in the part of the body that wasn’t massaged will work it’s way into the parts of the body that were massaged. A full body massage does not include massage of the  genitals and usually not the breasts.
