Swedish Massage

Quite simply “Swedish massage” is a classic massage that represents the western standard for massage.

Like all the massages we offer, Swedish massage is performed using oil. After an informal chat about your health and what you want from the session, you will be asked to undress to your level of comfort. This is usually down to underwear, you will be covered with a drape so only the part of your body being massage will be exposed at any time. The specific techniques used in Swedish massage involve the application of long gliding strokes, friction, and kneading and tapping movements on the soft tissues of the body. Sometimes passive or active joint movements are also used.

If it is your first time trying a massage, a Swedish is the perfect place to start, it is a great introduction into massage. It is particularly beneficial for relaxation and reducing stress, but will also assist overall body wellness and healing.

Our bodies are very well adapted to heal themselves, but they require the right environment to do so. When you get a massage your stress hormones are reduced and you get an increase in hormones that make you feel good, namely dopamine and seratonin.

With all our massages, the therapist will tailor the session to your specific needs. So, if you are still unsure which massage to choose then do not worry. A discussion will take place between you and your therapist to make sure you get the right type of treatment.

Take a Break

A massage is an excellent chance to take some timeout and truly relax. Turn off your phone, leave your worries at the door and just breathe.

More than “Just a Treat”

Many people see massage as a special treat or a luxury, maybe an annual massage to celebrate a birthday or gifted to yourself for completing a big task. This is great, and of course we advocate this, but the most benefit from massage is seen when you can commit yourself to something more regular. A massage once a month is actually not a huge commitment and the value you will get from it will be totally worth it.

A Swedish massage will leave you with a feeling a deep relaxation, an improved sense of your own body and connection with it, and you will feel more ease of movement through your daily activities.
