What is Effleurage?
I would love for the word “Effleurage” to become a household
name. Effleurage is a French word for a Swedish massage
technique. This technique includes beautiful long and short
strokes that can be applied to almost anywhere on the body.
This stroke is easy to learn and is the first to be taught in many
massage therapy programs. This sensual stroke is used to
spread warm oil on the skin, increase nourishing blood flow to
muscles and connective tissue. Applied lightly it will flush out
toxins and accelerate lymph and venous circulation. Applied
slowly it will induce relaxation and sleep. People can enjoy
effleurage at any age. Check out massage basics and other

and try some effleurage this Family Day or Valentines.
