During a Swedish massage the therapist lubricates the skin with massage oil and performs a range of massage strokes. These movements warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually breaking up muscle knots or adhesions.
Swedish massage is perfect for beginners or those wanting to just destress. One of the primary goals of a Swedish massage is to relax the body, but it also has the benefit of oxygenating the blood, helping the lymph system remove toxins, improving circulation and increasing the muscles range and flexibility.
If you are coming to us for the first time please stipulate whether you would like light, medium or firm pressure applied by the therapist and always declare if you have any injuries or other conditions that they should know about.
