Petrissage: A Tension-Relieving Technique

Swedish massage’s five basic movements yield a bounty of benefits. Find out more about the massage’s kneading technique, petrissage, with Groupon’s introduction.

Kneading, rolling, and squeezing—this, in a few words, is petrissage, a type of Swedish massage technique that focuses on compression and release. Working in combination with Swedish massage’s five other movements, these deep-reaching motions are designed to lift soft tissue away from its underlying structures, effectively stretching muscles and other soft tissues and promoting circulation so all your blood doesn’t pile up in your elbows. Specific maneuvers include kneading with the whole hand, using the thumbs to apply pressure to thinner tissue, and rolling skin between the fingers to prevent it from adhering to the fascia (that is, sheets of connective tissue) below and causing stiffness. Massage oil or cream is often used to help these strokes glide smoothly and avoid pinching the skin. Petrissage, like Swedish massage in general, often results in increased muscle mobility, improved peristaltic, or bowel, movement when performed on the abdomen and, of course, a sense of noodly relaxation.

I was given a massage by Heather and it was excellent. She identified spots on my body that needed extra attention and worked them out. She even performed multiple stretches to loosen up my muscles. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a good massage.

This was a great experience! My massage therapist was Jill and she was awesome! She really took the time to focus on the areas that needed the most work, while still not neglecting the rest of my body! The place was very nice. Cozy room, heated pad, nice lighting! Will def be back!
