(I offer varying depths with my Swedish Massage. And some trigger point release)
Swedish massage is one of the most commonly offered massage techniques. It's sometimes called a classic massage. The technique aims to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension. Swedish massage is gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief.
But what exactly does it entail? A Swedish-style massage primarily involves long, soft, kneading strokes to release tension from the deepest muscles of your body. While releasing tension from the surface layers of muscles, this method uses light, tapping, rhythmic strokes.
