The most widely recognized and commonly used category of bodywork is the Swedish massage. The massage style is referred to as classic massage. One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage is to relax the entire body. It also has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.

The massage significantly decreases the levels of the stress hormone cortisol, as well as arginine vasopressin-a hormone that can lead to increases in cortisol, increases in the number of lymphocytes, white blood cells that are part of the immune system, and a boost in the immune cells that may help fight colds and the flu.
