Swedish massage is perhaps the best - know massage treatment in the world. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. And it may even help after an injury.
The Swedish massage is incredibly relaxing. It is intended to relax and calm the muscles by eliminating tension and stiffness. Using a kneading and stretching technique, it has a gentle to medium level of pressure and this level is always determined by the person receiving the massage.
In addition to pure relaxation, Swedish massage also improves circulation, has the ability to relieve from muscular pain, and is also known to have powerful, positive effects on those who battle depression and anxiety.
