Swedish / sports massage


The reference in massage for athletes. 

Tired of your daily chores or si you suffer from body aches, try Swedish massage. It's very effective.

Originally, Swedish massage was invented in the 19th century.

Better known as “calisthenics”, this massage is dynamic.

It invigorates but also allows deep relaxation.

This very popular technique in the United States and Europe is a series of different maneuvers: effleurage, kneading, friction and percussion of well-targeted parts of the body. 


This massage is especially intended for athletes whose muscles are often overworked.

In some countries like Sweden, this massage is very often used for therapeutic purposes when performed by osteopaths or physiotherapists.

Stress and cramps give way to flexibility and zenitude.

Swedish massage is also suitable for people with insufficient physical activity because it promotes blood circulation.


Many clinical trials testify to the effectiveness of this approach. This massage is particularly recommended in case of acute or chronic lumbar or back pain.

Its benefits have been recognized in the postoperative field or to relieve osteoarthritis.

Thanks to the vigorous movements made during the massage, blood circulation increases, thus promoting greater muscle elasticity.


Swedish massage is for everyone, regardless of age. However, it is not recommended for people prone to hypo or hyper tension.

Indeed, by energetically massaging the legs to the top of the body, it brings the blood flow up to the heart. 

The same goes for those who have a history of heart problems  and venous problems. 

Massage du haut du dos


kneading: performed using the pulp of the thumbs and fingers. The soft tissues of the body are stretched and kneaded in depth.

Friction: Friction is the most powerful part of the massage. She presses the massaged tissues with her hand, fingers or thumbs in a circular motion.

Percussion: are rhythmic strokes made using the hands, fingers and fists. Beginning slowly, the blows accelerate over the massage and then slow down.

vibration: the vibrations make it possible to stimulate the nerve endings via very gentle pressure of the fingers and hands on the tissues. This pressure causes rapid tremors that act on the nervous, muscular and lymphatic systems.
