Swedish Massage

cranial

Swedish massage is usually described as the manipulation of soft tissue for therapeutic purposes. It uses a combination of five styles of long, flowing strokes, namely: effleurage (gliding), petrissage and kneading, tapotement (rhythmic tapping) and frictions.

Swedish massage has been found to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis. It has also been shown to be helpful in individuals with poor circulation. Swedish massage is also useful in aiding relaxation.
