Incorporating various types of strokes (from gliding strokes to kneading movements) and massage oil, this technique was designed to both stimulate and soothe the muscles and nervous system. It is believed that Swedish massage promotes general well-being through interaction with the skin, which is the body’s largest organ. Our therapists generally uses massage oil to facilitate making long, smooth strokes over the body. Swedish massage is done with the person covered by a sheet, a technique called draping.
