Swedish Body Massage
This massage is the original massage technique involving a sequence of movements working superficially and deeper into the tissue layers. Movements such as effleurage work over the skin with the palm of the hand producing relaxation, whereas movements like petrissage work deeply. Petrissage movements such as wringing and kneading will help to relieve tension promoting deep relaxation in the tissues and muscles. The skin’s natural functions will be stimulated improving the condition of the skin and the warmth created will help relax the body physically and mentally.
