Is the name for classic massage and is great for those wanting a deeply relaxing massage. Swedish massage is a soothing type of massage and I use organic oil and specific strokes to release tension and break up muscle ‘knots’. Swedish massage starts and finishes with relaxing effleurage strokes and then petrissage movements are performed which include kneading, picking up and wringing. This aids circulation and works deeper into the muscles. Percussion movements include hacking and cupping which is very stimulating, warming for the tissues and stimulating for the muscle fibres. I use friction movements to small areas to work deeply into muscle tissue. This is a wonderful de-stressing therapy that promotes relaxation and rejuvenation.

Benefits of Swedish massage :

  • Blood circulation is improved
  • The nervous system may be soothed or stimulated depending on the techniques used
  • Easing of muscular strain by flushing out toxins
  • Helps keep ligaments and tendons supple
  • Easing of emotional and physical stress
  • Skin is softened and nourished depending on the medium used

What does Swedish massage involve ?

After taking a consultation which includes a review of any symptoms, medical history and lifestyle, I will leave you to remove all jewelry and clothing down to your under garments, before lying on the couch, face down, covered with a towel. Only the part that is being massaged will be exposed at any one time. I play gentle music will be played and essential oils used to aid relaxation.

It is best to only eat a light meal after a treatment and drink plenty of water to help eliminate toxins. It is also best not to do too much after a massage to gain full benefit from the treatment.
