A massage is a popular method of stress relief and relaxation and is often used for recovering from injuries or reducing pain. Confusion in the process of choosing a type of massage is common. In this article, we explain the 5 most popular types of massage and discuss which one is right for you.
1. Swedish Massage
A Swedish Massage is the most popular type of massage, often used to relieve stress, back pain, and muscle injuries. In this massage, a therapist uses lower pressure when compared to other similar techniques, along with shorter tapping strokes and longer deeper strokes to moderate pressure.
Therapists also utilize flowing, long strokes in the heart’s direction along with kneading and circular movements and massage oil or lotion to minimize friction. Swedish massage is often the first massage recommended to anyone who has never undergone a massage before.
