Effleurage is a stroking massage movement using both hands flowing continuously from one stroke to another.

 

 

It is used between all other massage strokes and aids lymphatic drainage and venous blood circulation; the movement follows the lymphatic system and when possible Effleurage is focussed towards the heart, following the lie of the coat.
