Five basic strokes used in Full Body Swedish Massage technique

1. Effleurage: This massage stroke consists of long, gliding, sweeping strokes administered with hands (both open palm and fists) and forearms. It is further divided as light and deep effleurage strokes.

2. Petrissage: This stroke involves kneading, rolling, wringing and lifting actions, which help to free up knotted and bound muscles.

3. Friction: This is a warming stroke that quickly generates heat, and helps to absorb the medicated essential oils into the body. This stroke can be done by rubbing back and forth along the length of the muscle or across it by either using wringing motion or small circular movements.

4. Tapotement: This stroke includes tapping, hacking, and pounding actions that rhythmically stimulates nerves, muscles, and circulation. It helps in breaking the deep seated toxins and cellulite. Reduces soreness of the muscles and improves blood circulation.

5. Vibration: This stroke includes rocking, shaking and trembling movements. It helps in tissue relaxation which is superficial. It helps loosen joints and ligaments as well as improved synovial fluid activity in the joints thus improving joint flexibility.

Overall, Swedish massage technique involves rubbing muscles together in the same direction as the flow of blood to the heart.

The Swedish Massage improves blood circulation, which increases supply of nutrients and oxygen, and carry away wastes and toxins. It also facilitates the smooth flow of energy and communication among various systems in the body. Swedish Massage is also believed to activate some nerve fibers that transmit the signals of pressure and touch to the brain. These fibers are thought to be faster in action than those carrying pain signals to the brain. This is how massaging a painful site can override the sensation of pain.
