The Perfect Strokes
When receiving our Swedish massage in Evansville, IN, there are five primary strokes we perform.
Effleurage strokes are long flowing strokes that allow the therapist to spread the lubricant and feel the muscle tone.
Petrissage is a kneading stroke that lifts and squeezes the tissue and it helps flush out metabolic waste in that area.
Friction is a stroke that involves fast short movements to create heat. This is good to bring blood flow to that area and is great for loosening ligaments.
Tapotement is a series of light blows to the body designed to relax a muscle. This is the stroke most people are familiar with and sometimes looks like alternating karate chops.
Vibration is a stroke that is used to create movement in the entire body and when done properly, is very relaxing.
