Swedish massage is now known as “Traditional” massage. Swedish massage includes long gliding strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, and shaking motions. It is effective for most ailments, because massaging of the skin, the body’s largest organ, sets up a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body. This massage technique affects the nerves, muscles, glands, and circulation, and promotes health and well being for all who need this.
This special form of massage is typically used before, during and after athletic events to prepare the athlete for peak perfomance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility (stretching) and to prevent injuries. Depending on the needs of the athlete, a variety of techniques are used including classic Swedish strokes, cross-fiber friction, pressure-point work, and joint mobilization. This technique is used alot with those in the “dancer” profession, too.
