Massage has been used and known to be and instinctive way to relieve muscle tension and to relax the body and mind.
A typical Swedish massage session lasts for one hour. Longer and shorter sessions are available (i.e 90 mins or 30 mins depending on your preference) for treating specific areas such as the back, shoulders and neck causing discomfort, aches or pains.
Our Swedish Massage focuses on pinpointing aches and pains through warming the muscle tissue to release tension and knots that have built up over time. Aromatherapy essential oils are worked into the skin to help promote relaxation and ease stress in the mind and body.
Multiple different techniques and intensities of pressure are used during a Swedish Massage, the main two being effleurage and petrissage. Effleurage relates to softer, gentle massage strokes with little pressure, best suited to initially warm up the muscle and work on bonier areas. Once the thicker muscle tissue is warmed, petrissage movements will be used to work deeper into the tissue to release strain and knots.
A Swedish Massage can be used to target a particular health issue, such as muscle cramps, arthritis and sciatica. Movements will work on the problem area to relax the muscle, ease pain and promote active movement.
Here are just some of the benefits:
