Swedish Massage Therapy Virginia
This is a classic way to reduce stress, relieve muscle tension and improve circulation. Swedish massage involves effleurage (long gliding strokes), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (percussion) and friction. This type of bodywork can be experienced in a lighter or stronger style depending on the individual's preference. Swedish Massage is usually used as a precursor to other types of deeper bodywork, as it prepares the tissues for the deeper work.
