Body massage originated in Sweden. Swedish body massage is the original massage technique involving a sequence of movements working superficially and deeper into the tissue layers.
Movements such as effleurage work over the skin with the palm of the hand producing relaxation, whereas movements like petrissage work deeply.
Petrissage movements such as wringing and kneading will help to relieve tension promoting deep relaxation in the tissues and muscles.
As no two people are alike, the body massage sequence will be adapted to the client's needs.
I offer a Back Massage which is a half hour treatment and Full Body Massage which is an hour. A full body massage includes work on the neck, shoulders, arms, legs and back.
Treatments may also be described as back massage, stress massage, all being adaptations of a Swedish body massage.
