Swedish massage helps to increase oxygen in the blood and remove toxins from muscles. This is accomplished by using a variety of techniques that apply pressure to surface muscles with movements that follow the direction of blood flow to the heart. The result is improved circulation, reduced stress, relaxed muscles, greater flexibility and improved overall health and wellness. Swedish massage uses six styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. The six basic strokes are Effleurage: Gliding strokes with the palms, thumbs and/or fingertips, Petrissage: Kneading movements with the hands, thumbs and/or fingers, Friction: Circular pressures with the palms of hands, thumbs and/or fingers, Vibration: Oscillatory movements that shake or vibrate the body, Percussion: Brisk hacking or tapping, Passive and active movements: Bending and stretching www.royston-massage.co.uk
