How relaxation massage...
Reduces stress Massage techniques create a relaxation response which alleviates muscle tension, improves heart rate and blood pressure. It also boosts the immune system decreasing the effects of stress.
Improves blood circulation The pressure applied by the massage technique moves blood through the body. Releasing the same pressure causes new blood to flow in applying friction techniques between the skin and fingers. These techniques help increase healing, decrease any discomfort and minimize swelling.
Increases flexibility Having a massage on a regular basis can improve your flexibility by rubbing and stroking the muscles, connective tissues, tendons and joints. Allowing for more frequent movement and flexibility through joints.
Reduces stiffness Long smooth strokes and pressure relax muscle tissue. Which reduces the chances of painful muscle contractions or spasms.
Alleviates anxiety & depression Serotonin known as one of the body’s anti pain mechanisms increases by an average of 28%. An increase in serotonin boosts your body’s ability to fight pain and anxiety. After receiving the massage, the body will feel relaxed allowing the individual to let go of negative thoughts or feelings of stress or sadness.
Enhances well-being A relaxation massage will relax muscle tissue. Which in return leads to decreased strain on the nerves, increased joint movement and improves blood pressure and circulation throughout the body.

For those wanting to know more...
The actual inventor of Swedish Massage is Johann Georg Mezger, a Dutch physician who was noted for studying French massage techniques and their effects on physical healing. Mezger codified the five massage techniques that form the foundation for Swedish Massage Effleurage, Petrissage, Friction, Vibration and Tapotement. Let’s discuss the two techniques that Johno uses and analyse their different applications. Effleurage Swedish Massage begins with a set of stroking movements known as effleurage.Effleurage is a French word that means to lightly touch or to skim. This technique consists of a series of long, gliding or circular massage strokes that is applied using different degrees of pressure. Effleurage is applied to a patient’s body to loosen muscular knots and to release tension. It is performed at the beginning of a massage therapy session to warm-up the muscles and at the end of it, to soothe them out. The amount of pressure that is applied with each stroke varies upon the needs of the patient. Generally speaking, there are 3 general approaches to applying effleurage:
Feather or Nerve Stroking: This is the lightest of the effleurage approaches. It consist of applying very light fingertip pressure across the surface of the body. It is primarily used for generating relaxation and does not have much effect on the neuromuscular system. As such, feather stroking is not commonly utilized during a typical massage therapy session, although it is often utilized for head massages.
Superficial Effleurage: This is the most common approach to utilizing effleurage. It is used at the beginning of a massage to apply oil and to warm up the body’s muscles and tissues. The strokes are performed by using an open-palm across a wide area of the body with varying degrees of pressure to promote blood circulation.
Deeper Effleurage: This approach is similar to superficial effleurage, but utilizes more pressure on particular areas of the body, especially on areas that are tense and heavily knotted.
Petrissage After the muscles have been warmed up with the effleurage strokes, the next technique that follows is petrissage. Petrissage comes from the French word pétrir, which means “to knead.” The technique generally applied by manually compressing soft tissues of an area through rhythmic kneading, squeezing, and/or rolling.
These movements are particularly useful for stretching and loosening tense muscles, which also aids in improving blood circulation and helps to detoxify the body. While there are many approaches to applying petrissage, the four most common are:
Kneading: Kneading is the most common of the petrissage approaches and the motions are often compared to those a baker makes when kneading dough. It is applied by lifting the soft tissues of an area, then squeezing and rolling it back in a slow and circularly rhythmic fashion, using both palms. The amount of pressure that is applies varies, but kneading is particularly useful for deep muscular penetration.
Wringing: Wringing is similar to kneading, expect that is begins by compressing the soft tissue area against its underlying structure (bones, etc.) before being lifted, squeezed, and rolled back.
Rolling: Rolling is applied by lifting and squeezing the soft tissues in a side-ways pattern. This petrissage approach is applied to either the muscle fibers (Muscle Rolling) or the epidermis (Skin Rolling).
Lifting (Pick up and Squeeze): Lifting is similar to kneading, but rather than applying the compression movements with both palms, it is performed with the thumb, index, and middle fingers.
Because petrissage can be applied in many different ways and with varying degrees of pressure, it offers many therapeutic benefits to patients with tense or injured muscles. As such, petrissage usually takes up the majority of the time in a Swedish Massage Therapy session.
