Effleurage Massage Therapy

Effleurage

Massages are perfect for the relaxation of the mind, body, and soul. At Back To You, we provide patients with effleurage massage therapy, a form of Swedish massage that involves long entrancing strokes using the palm of a hand across the body to induce relaxation.

The gliding movements during effleurage are oftentimes repeated several times over the same areas of the body. Not only does this help to relax the muscles, but it provides other physical benefits for patients including:

  • Stimulating nerve tissues
  • Promoting blood circulation
  • Cleansing of the skin
  • Reducing muscle tension throughout the body
  • And more

Effleurage is an exceptionally beneficial technique for post-surgical or injured patients. With a light touch, our massage therapists encourage lymphatic flow, helping to reduce swelling and keep the immune system working properly.
