The Swedish massage is a classic massage, one of the most popular massages in the world. This method is an effective way to relieve aches and pains in particular, but also muscle tension and stress. Its basic technique is percussion and its movements are generally applied to the soft tissues of the body, joints, tendons and muscles.
Caused by tiny lesions of muscle fibers following significant physical exertion, stiffness is muscle pain that manifests itself 24 or 48 hours after physical exertion. This pain sometimes lasts for a whole week and it gets worse when the muscles are activated.
To stop suffering from this pain which can be an obstacle to carrying out daily tasks, a Swedish massage session is the fastest and most effective solution.
The Swedish massage is applied following technical movements that will stimulate blood circulation for better oxygenation and elimination of toxins:
Percussion which is the basic technique of all massage.
The effleurage by ascending movements towards the heart.
Kneading with the fingers and the pulp of the hands.
Friction of the trigger points between the neck and shoulder.
Mixing or for some the tapping and vibration.
A Swedish massage session lasts on average 1 hour. The patient wears only a minimum of underwear. He lies down on a massage table and covers himself with a towel at the non-massaged parts. The practitioner uses anti-stress massage oil, lotion or cream to fluidize the movements.
