What Is Swedish Massage?
Swedish Massage is a treatment in which a therapist manipulates muscles and other soft tissues of the body to improve health and well-being. A variety of massage technics are used, from gentle stroking, to kneading of the muscles and other soft tissues.
Massage has been practiced as a healing therapy for centuries in nearly every culture around the world. It helps to relieve muscle tension, reduce stress and evoke a feeling of calm.
What Does A Swedish Massage Involve?
Following a detailed medical history, you will be asked to undress to your underwear, or remove only the clothing you feel comfortable to do so, while the Therapist leaves the room. Once undressed, you will lie on the treatment couch usually face down to begin with and cover yourself with the towels. The Therapist will only re-enter the room once you have finished undressing and are covered up. The towels will only be moved to access the areas being worked on at that time and then re-covered.
Massage oil is used to reduce friction between the therapist’s hands and your skin. The therapist will ask as the massage begins whether they are applying too much or too little pressure.
If you do not wish a certain area of the body to be treated, for example the legs, these will be avoided at your request and more time will be spent on the other areas of the body you are comfortable to have treated.
