Effleurage Massage

This comes from the French word, effleuer, meaning “to touch lightly.” In a massage session, this is typically the opening massage technique to relax and warm up the muscles. Therapists refer to it as the gliding stroke.

Effleurage is done with soothing, often circular strokes over the skin. To improve the experience, try varying the rhythm or speed of the massager. Slow strokes are relaxing; faster strokes are more stimulating.

Based on the origin of the word, effleurage is meant to be a light massage, but you can also try different pressures. Light pressure stimulates the skin; stronger pressure improves circulation. A combination of light and more intense pressure creates a soothing, pain-relieving massage.

Customer Testimonials

David (NY)
I received the Flex Therapy massager and it works great! I tried it out on my back and hip. It has great power for a battery operated massager and its great that it has no power cord. I also like that it operates on two AA batteries. Light easy to hold on to. I used the pinpoint tip and then general massager. Didn't try the facial tip yet but noticed that there were three more attachments that didn't come with the massager, but overall very pleased with it!
