Swedish Massage in Southfield, MI
Swedish massage involves using the hands, and forearms on the superficial muscles with the intent to relax muscles and improve circulation. It is also the most popular in the United States. The technique involves four strokes: petrissage (kneading), effleurage (gliding), tapotement (tapping), and friction (cross fiber). Swedish massage is a regular component in stress management programs.
Swedish Massage is primarily used to relax the body and mind with slow, light to medium pressured strokes over the body. Many clients receive a Swedish Massage to help shorten recovery time after exercise by removing metabolic wastes out of the muscles. The strokes and swipes of the Swedish Massage are designed with therapeutic benefit in mind. Swedish Massages also help to improve blood flow by returning from it from the extremities without increasing the heart load.
Another reason client's want a Swedish Massage is because the massage stretches ligaments and tendons and relaxes the nerves while stimulating the skin.
