Swedish Massage: Four Steps to Relaxation

The gentle pressure of Swedish massage makes it a popular method for treating pain and stress. Read our guide—rather than Norse sagas—to learn what to expect.

Most Europeans refer to Swedish massage as classic massage, possibly because the technique did not originate in Sweden. In fact, the individual elements of the style can be traced to all parts of the world, but it was a Dutch practitioner who established the system that combines four distinct motions—whose names, as it happens, are mostly French: effleurage, petrissage, friction, and tapotement. Together, the motions help relieve muscle tension and stimulate blood flow, thereby energizing the body and soothing the mind during a single relaxing session.

The four phases are easy to distinguish. Effleurage refers to the smooth, gliding strokes that help relax soft tissues at the beginning of the treatment, followed by the squeezing, rolling, or kneading gestures of petrissage. Deep, circular motions make up the friction phase, in which layers of tissue rub against one another to boost circulation. Therapists conclude the massage with tapotement, a rapid cadence of percussive taps performed with cupped hands, fingers, or the edge of the hand.

Higgins Physical Medicine

At Higgins Physical Medicine, Doctor of Chiropractic John W. Eickert and his staff adhere to the Four Tenets of Health: bodily balance, avoidance of drugs and surgery, nutritious food, and peace of mind. With that in mind, they schedule an array of noninvasive chiropractic services, including massages, physical therapy, and Pettibon System adjustments that help improve posture. Before treatment, Dr. Eickert can take digital x-rays to diagnose problems such as ruptured disks or Colicky Skeleton Syndrome.
