A Swedish massage aims to promote relaxation for the entire body by releasing muscle tension using a variety of techniques used, including circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, light tapping, and more. Swedish massage is gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief. But the benefits of Swedish massage go beyond relaxation. It can help increase the level of oxygen in the blood and improve circulation and flexibility.

Depending on the issue, the Massage Therapist may recommend multiple sessions to treat the problem, to ensure that it is eliminated and to build up strength and resistance in the affected area to prevent future recurrences. Because this type of massage is designed to treat orthopedic conditions, it requires extensive medical/therapeutic training.

It is important to tell the therapist when they hit a tender spot and if any discomfort you experience is outside your comfort range.
