What is Swedish Massage?
The Swedish massage works on the top layers of your muscles, combined with movements of the joints.
Developed in the early 1800s, this therapeutic massage is more popular than ever. Perhaps the reason for its popularity is that the movements done during the massage already come naturally to most humans. These include:
- Effleurage – Long gliding strokes
- Petrissage – Kneading
- Tapotement – Gentle tapping
- Vibration – Rhythmic shaking of the body
Depending on what your body requires, a Swedish massage can either be gentle and soft or deep and firm.

The massage therapist will go over the paperwork with you, after they bring you to the room where they will be working on you , and ask a few intake questions that they deem necessary.
