massageSwedish Massage

Swedish Massage is the classic oil massage and consists of slow rhythmic manipulation of the muscles. The basic strokes are effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), friction (deep stroking) and tapotement (percussion). A massage oil or lotion is used that nourishes the skin and allows the hands to glide over the body. The treatment will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

SUITABILITY
Swedish Massage is generally considered a safe treatment for most people.
