This is also referred to as Classic massage and is a terrific all round treatment for whatever is ailing you. It is predominantly used for relaxation, and easing of muscle strain or soreness.
It is much gentler in nature than other types of massage, and utilises plenty of effleurage, which are longer, flowing strokes. A great treatment for keeping your body and mind in perfect condition.
Swedish massage sessions can be paired with some supported stretching, in order to loosen up muscles and joints, and improve flexibility.
