640-Hour Massage Certificate: Western Focus
Most massage therapy practiced in the United States is based in Swedish or western massage. Practitioners of western massage usually use a lubricant to work directly on the client’s skin, utilizing various strokes to manipulate soft tissues. This treatment engages the muscular, cardiovascular and nervous systems to reduce pain and tissue tightness, enhance circulation and promote general relaxation.
