A Swedish Massage involves long, soft, kneading strokes to release tension from the deepest muscles of your body. While releasing tension from the surface layers of muscles, this method uses light, tapping, and rhythmic strokes. Both these techniques are combined with joint movement to relax, energize, and heal your joints and muscles.
