Swedish Massage

Swedish massage or classic massage techniques underpin other therapeutic massage such as sports or deep tissue massage. It is based on western anatomy and physiology as opposed to eastern massage therapies that are based on meridians. It consists of a series of deliberate movements done in a particular order, including long and short strokes as well as tapping.

A Swedish massage can vary from a light or gentle massage to a rather vigorous massage. This depends on the style of the massage therapist or indeed the needs of the client in respect to the treatment. Always let the massage therapist know what your issues are and let them know whether you prefer light or vigorous in your massage. 

Swedish massage can be helpful most often for relaxation but also for injuries in some cases.
