A massage involves manipulating the muscles and joints to relieve stress or pain. This is achieved by relaxing tight muscles and promoting blood circulation. I utilize Swedish Massage which is not only for relaxation but also can be used to address any muscle issues the client may be experiencing. I may use one or all of the following techniques to address my client's needs: Effleurage. Effleurage is used at the beginning of the massage as a warm up and at the end of the session to soothe the muscles. This technique involves gentle circular or gliding strokes. The masseuse applies different levels of pressure on the body to loosen knots. It also helps in relieving tension. There are three classes of effleurage, each based on the amount of pressure the masseuse uses. These classes are feather stroking, superficial effleurage, and deeper effleurage. The degree of pressure applied depends on the needs of the individual receiving the massage. Petrissage. This technique consists of a deeper, kneading movement. The masseuse manually compresses your soft tissues in a rhythmic fashion. The most common ways of performing petrissage include kneading, wringing, rolling, and lifting. Petrissage helps to stretch and loosen muscles and promote blood circulation. Performing petrissage takes the most time in a Swedish massage. It’s best for people with injured muscles since it provides many therapeutic benefits.
