Swedish massage is one of the most popular forms of massage therapy. It is also called relaxation massage. The technique aims to promote relaxation for the body by releasing muscle tension.
Swedish massage involves long strokes, effleurage, kneading and circular movements so it is a gentler massage. The characteristics of swedish massage not only benefit sportsmen but can also be used to help anyone cope better with illnesses and anxiety, such as cancer, heart diseases and other chronic illnesses.
