Therapeutic Swedish Massage

 

 Swedish massage is the foundation of what all Registered Massage Therapists practice. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking.

 

Other techniques that may be included in a treatment are:

-hydrotherapy

-trigger point therapy

-myo-fascial release 

-passive/active release 

-joint mobilizations

-manual lymphatic drainage 

-breast massage *

       and others.
