Swedish Massage

The art and technique of a Swedish Massage involves working and acting on the body with pressure. Massage can be applied using the hand, fingers, elbows, knees and forearm.

Swedish Massage uses five basic movements to increase circulation and, in theory, remove toxins from muscles. The therapist uses firm but gentle pressure, aided by oil to reduce friction, to compress and relax muscles, always stroking in the direction of the heart.
