The most common type of bodywork is by far Swedish massage therapy, or "Classic Massage" as it is known outside the West, which can be found at any day spa around the country. In fact, every certified or licensed massage therapist in the U.S. will be trained in the Swedish modality.  It encompasses many beneficial techniques; rhythmic, long, Swedish Massagekneading strokes, as well as light, tapping strokes, on the superficial muscle layers combined with movement of the joints. Because Swedish massage is quick and rhythmic, and its long movements move lymphatic fluid well, it's favored by people who are looking for a more relaxing, nice experience. Add to that the use of scented massage oils which are necessary for a smooth technique, and you can imagine why this type of therapy is so popular at spa's everywhere! That does not mean, however, that proper Swedish massage has fewer actual therapeutic benefits. Swedish MassageThe light to deep effleurage (stroking or gliding), friction, and petrissage (kneading) techniques can be extremely useful for athletes looking to treat the entire musculoskeletal system. Marathoners, boxers, swimmers, and triathletes to name few often rely on Swedish massage as their go-to therapy after every training session or event because of it's overall beneficial effect. Other, more advanced, massage techniques are brought to bear to treat specific muscle groups, runner's legs for example, or to treat injuries. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. It is also used before and after sports events and activities, along with Deep Tissue therapy, and can help prevent injuries and strains prior to an event, as well as shorten recovery time after one. When receiving a Swedish massage you can expect to be undressed, and draped with clean sheets in a professional manner to your own comfort level. Oils and lotions are used to facilitate the smooth, invigorating technique.
