Swedish Massage Therapy: Is a great introduction to massage as well as a good type of massage for someone that simply wants to relax or may be sensitive to deeper touch. This type of massage uses long sliding/gliding strokes, kneading, rhythmic tapping, cross fiber friction, and vibration/shaking.   The movements, which are mainly directed towards the heart, provide relaxation, stress reduction, improved circulation, as well being helpful in reducing pain and joint stiffness.  The term “Swedish” massage is also referred to as a “classic massage.”
