Prairie Village Massage Therapy and Reiki

Swedish Massage

A massage technique designed to disperse physical tension from the body in a gentle way by loosening tight muscles and reducing stiffness, removing energy blockages within the body and increasing blood and lymph circulation.

Relaxation/Swedish massage uses five soft tissue manipulation techniques:

  • Effleurage (long, gliding strokes),
  • Petrissage (kneading strokes),
  • Friction (deep, circular rubbing),
  • Tapotement (tapping) and
  • Vibration (fine, rapid shaking movements).

The aim of the massage is to bring the body back into a balanced and relaxed state.
