We will no tire you with quizes and difficult professional vocabulary, but basic Swedish Massage Techniques that can be learned during the class are these:

Swedish massage techniques are designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones. Here are some basic most used Swedish massage techniques:

  1. Effleurage: This is a smooth, gliding stroke used to relax soft tissue and prepare the client for deeper massage strokes. The therapist’s hands move lightly over the body with a continuous motion, typically towards the heart, applying oil or lotion for smoothness.

  2. Petrissage: Petrissage involves kneading, rolling, and lifting the muscles and tissues. The therapist uses their hands, thumbs, or fingertips to grasp and gently squeeze the muscles, helping to improve circulation and release tension.

  3. Friction: Friction involves applying pressure across the grain of the muscles to break down adhesions and realign tissue fibers. The therapist may use their thumbs, fingertips, or palms to apply deep, circular movements on specific areas of tension.

Remember, it’s important to communicate about preferences, any areas of tension or discomfort, and the pressure is comfortable with during the session. This will ensure that you receive and give a massage tailored to the needs and preferences.
