On Hilton Head Island
What is a Swedish massage?
The Swedish Massage is one of the most popular massage techniques at Namaste Spa. This technique uses light to medium pressure and is recommended to anyone looking for a relaxation-based massage. If this is your first massage, Swedish is your best choice to experience ultimate relaxation.
Swedish massage techniques
A Swedish massage can include both firm, yet gentle strokes. There are five basic strokes that can be used by your massage therapist during this massage are:
- effleurage (sliding or gliding)
- petrissage (kneading)
- tapotement (rhythmic tapping)
- friction (cross fiber or with the fibers)
