Swedish Massage
Swedish Massage

This massage is maybe the best known and most common type of massage. It involves light to firm pressure strokes on muscles and tissues.  If you don’t get massage very often, this type of massage is the perfect choice for you.  Your massage therapists will adjust the pressure according to your sensitivity and preference.

What Happens During A Swedish Massage

During a Swedish massage you are nude or wearing underwear underneath the sheet. The therapist guarantees your privacy and uncovers only the body-part worked on, a technique called draping.
The therapist lubricates the skin with cream or oil and performs a variety of massage strokes. These movements warm up the muscle tissue and are releasing tension. They also gradually break up adhered tissue. This massage style promotes relaxation, among other health benefits.

Before the Massage

The therapist will ask you about your intention and expected results from the massage. Things you would want to inform the therapist include areas of tightness or pain, allergies, injuries, accidents and other conditions. It is an interview where therapist and client develop a plan that helps you to get the most out of your treatment.
