What is a Swedish Massage?

The Swedish massage is the most common Western massage and forms the foundation for the sports massage, deep tissue massage, and aromatherapy massage, amongst others.

It is based on the concepts of anatomy and physiology and can be either gentle or firm, depending on what your massage therapist is trying to achieve. All Swedish massages use massage oil to lubricate the skin.

Specific, traditional massage strokes are then performed; these movements warm up your muscle tissue and stimulate circulation. The Swedish massage is particularly effective in releasing muscle tension, breaking up muscle ‘knots’, and relieving pain.
