Swedish massage techniques used at Sparkle Beauty in Hobart

Swedish massage features specific techniques that differentiate it from other massage styles. The primary techniques include effleurage (long, smooth strokes), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction, and vibration or shaking. These movements work synergistically to enhance relaxation and stimulate muscle recovery. Effleurage strokes are typically used at the beginning and end of a session to soothe the body, while petrissage and tapotement are more vigorous and intended to target deeper layers of muscle.

If this is your first time having a massage, we recommend starting with Swedish massage rather than a deep tissue massage.
