Swedish massage is the basic technique that most people think of when they think of a massage. Swedish massage features long, graceful strokes which increase circulation and blood-flow, decrease muscle tension, relieve muscular spasm and pain, and reduce swelling and inflammation contributing to a feeling of calm and relaxation. The basic philosophy of Swedish massage is to manipulate the soft tissue for therapeutic purposes to enhance the body's tendency to heal itself. Swedish massage strokes and principles may be combined with other techniques based on your specific needs.

It is especially effective in working a specific joint, muscle, or muscle group, and is a good option for clients with specific needs.
