Introduction to Swedish Massage

This massage style is known in Sweden and throughout most of the world as ‘classic massage’; only the Dutch and English speaking countries refer to it as ‘Swedish’. True to its classical name, it is generally the most well-known massage in the Western world. The treatment helps to promote the many general benefits of massage. For example, circulation is enhanced while muscular tension is reduced and knots are removed. 

This full-body massage is soft and relaxing and employs some deep tissue work. It is an ideal lesson through which to master the basics of massaging with oil. Once comfortable with these basics, the techniques of many other massages can be attempted with confidence. 

Effleurage, petrissage, friction and percussive strokes are demonstrated.  

As with all of these massages, do not worry if you do not own a massage table as most of the techniques can be performed on a bed or floor. You can simply skip the techniques which logistically require a table to be performed, and you may consider substituting these movements with techniques from other lessons, such as the Hawaiian or sports massage tutorials. Alternatively, the movements that are designed for a table can also be performed over the side of a bed.

Section 2: Full-Body Swedish Massage
6 Lectures 55:08

While you can start a full-body Swedish massage with any area of the body, we like to start with the front of the legs. Another popular starting point is the back. All massage receivers are different and all massage givers are different. It is best to find out what your receiver likes, and also what you feel works best for you.

The hands are one of the most sensitive areas of the body and so this can be a very nice area of the massage.

The abdomen section of this massage is unique because you will be directly massaging internal organs.

We will now begin the Face-Down section of the massage. Remember, if you wish, you could also big the treatment here, or on the back.

Finally, the Swedish back massage, incorporating some deep tissue work. This is the favorite area of the massage because tension is often stored in the muscles of the back and shoulders.
