Swedish or classic massage is defined in large part by the original strokes that compose its method: effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading),
tapotement (striking), and frictions (rubbing), with vibration, added later.
Massage involves working on and manipulating the body with pressure –
structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving – tension, motion, or
vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids.
Target tissues may include:
muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as
well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Massage
can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, forearm, and feet.
Client will be covered with towels or a sheet. Only the area being worked on will be exposed and their modesty will be maintained at all times.
Who is it suitable for?
Most adults and children aged 14 years and above. Please be aware children below the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or responsible adult who will remain present throughout the treatment. Parent or Guardian’s consent is required prior to treatment commencing.
