Swedish massage is one of the most common types of massage therapy. The main goal of Swedish massage is to relax the entire body, mind, and spirit. Swedish involves the use of hands, forearms, or elbows to manipulate the superficial layers of the muscle and bring about deep relaxation for the client. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of the massage. Experience increased blood circulation, mental and physical relaxation, a decrease in stress and muscle tension, and improved range of motion.
