Swedish Massage FAQ’s
The main difference between Swedish massage and Regular massage is the techniques. Swedish massage uses light, gentle strokes to motivate relaxation and calmness. On the other side, in a regular massage, we do not use any motive and techniques. In Swedish massage, we have the motive to relax the body, release from stress and in some cases of injury, get rid of the pain. In regular massage, we do not have any techniques
Swedish massage uses deeper pressure in a circular motion to release the tension of the muscles but, in deep tissue massage, we use long and slow strokes with intense pressure to relieve stress in overworked muscles either from sports or intense exercise. A significant difference is that more pressure is applied in deep tissue massage than in Swedish massage.
