Swedish massage is one of the most well known and commonly offered massage style which aims to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension. With Swedish massage, therapists use kneading, long strokes, deep circular movements, and passive joint movements. These techniques are meant to relax, stimulate nerve endings, and increase blood flow and lymph drainage.

It may be of help for those who experience tension in their lower back, shoulders, or neck. The method used involves firm pressure without being so firm that it hurts.
