Swedish Massage

A Swedish Massage is the most common and most popular massage requested by Music City Massage. Many people seek a Swedish Massage for relaxation and stress reduction.  The therapist uses different techniques when giving a Swedish Massage that loosens up tight-sore muscles for great tension relief, mainly in the back, lower back, neck and shoulder areas. When getting a Swedish Massage the therapist goal is to promote relaxation. The therapist applies long, smooth gliding strokes called Effleurage used to relax soft tissue. A technique called Petrissage is also used where the therapist kneads, rolls and squeezes the muscle tissue with the right amount of pressure to promote circulation and stress reduction.

Massage Techniques

During a Swedish Massage the therapist will use a Friction and Tapotements techniques alongside¬† Effleurage and Petrissage techniques for a more relaxing and therapeutic massage. All four techniques used together in combination will reach different layers of muscle and increase soft tissue blood flow and help reduce scar tissue. After a Swedish Massage many clients feel “massage drunk,” a term used when the client feels totally relaxed and a little light-headed but perfectly normal. A great choice of massage to de-stress and to rejuvenate the body and mind. Contact us today at Music City Massage for more information or to schedule your Swedish Massage.
