Swedish massage is widely considered to be among the most basic methods of massage
and is therefore usually the first type of massage studied by massage therapists.
The Swedish massage compiles a variety of techniques that aim to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones.
While the main purpose remains to increase oxygen flow in the blood and to release toxins from the muscles, it is also soothing, as opposed to the rougher techniques of deep-tissue massage.
It is also up to you to state your preference of pressure, as Swedish massage can
be performed with a light hand or a firm hand.
