Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking.
Swedish massage increases the oxygen flow in the blood and helps to release toxins from the muscles; it can be helpful in reducing pain and joint stiffness. It also is known to reduce physical and emotional stress.
