What is Swedish Massage?

One of the most common forms of massage is the Swedish Massage. The primary goal of this therapeutic technique is to help relax your entire body. The style and pressure used can vary depending upon what you and your practitioner are trying to achieve with your session. This can be slow and gentle or a more vigorous approach.

How Is this Technique Performed?

Swedish Massage involves a hands-on approach using a combination of five different techniques. They include: effleurage – a long gliding stroke; petrissage – the use of kneading and compression similar to kneading dough; friction strokes – uses a small circular or perpendicular motions with either the fingers, the palms of your hand, or a soft fist; vibration – a precise and tremulous motion that sinks into the tissue; and tapotemenent – which uses a drumming or patting motion with either the use of fingertips, cupped hands, a soft fist, or the ulnar side of the hand.


During this type of massage therapy, the client will be undressed and covered by a sheet or towel while lying comfortably faced down on a massage table with your head in a u-shaped head rest. The practitioner will perform the massage using lotion, and only uncover the portion of your body they are working on. Typically the practitioner will starts the Swedish Massage by working on your back, proceeding on to the back of each leg, continuing on to the arms, and finishes up with your neck and shoulders.
