Swedish Massage for Full-Body Relaxation

Calming Hands offers Swedish massage therapy for full-body relaxation. A Swedish massage typically involves rubbing the muscles with long, gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart to ease bodily tension. It can also include these common strokes:


  • Petrissage: squeezing, rolling or kneading the muscles
  • Friction: deep, circular movements that increase blood flow and break down scar tissue by rubbing layers of tissue against each other 
  • Tapotement: short, alternating taps with the edge of the hand


Swedish massage decreases muscle toxins, and improves circulation and flexibility. It also boosts immune cells that can help fight colds and the flu. Come to Calming Hands in Conception Bay South and feel your tension, stress and discomfort fade away with a Swedish massage. Call to book your appointment today.
