Swedish Massage | Living Arts Wellness | Fort Collins, CO
During Swedish massage, the Living Arts Wellness massage therapist will apply massage oil to your skin to facilitate various massage strokes, including the smooth, gliding strokes called effleurage.
Other classic Swedish massage moves include kneading, friction, stretching and (sometimes) tapping.
Swedish massage promotes relaxation, eases muscle tension, and creates other health benefits. It can be slow and gentle or vigorous and bracing, depending on what the therapist wants to achieve.
Feel free to state your preference for pressure during Swedish massage therapy.
Pressure in a Swedish massage can range from light to firm. Swedish massage usually includes some deeper work on areas of specific muscle tension.
If you want more intensive work and firmer pressure, ask for a deep tissue massage.
