Swedish massage, also referred to as Circulatory massage is the foundation for other western massage techniques. Swedish style massage uses long strokes, kneading and friction with the primary purpose of increasing circulation and promoting relaxation. Pressure can be light to firm but is not as detailed as Deep Tissue massage. It’s important to remember that deeper isn’t always better.
