Swedish Massage


Swedish massage is an enjoyable massage that promotes stress relief. It is used to improve circulation, relieve muscle pain and tension, increase flexibility and induce relaxation. It combines four basic strokes to the skin:

• Effleurage - long gliding
• Petrissage - kneading, rolling and picking up
• Tapotement - cupping, hacking and pounding
• Vibration

• Friction

Massage oil or cream is used.


What to expect


 Your massage will take place in a warm, quiet, comfortable room. Prior to your massage you will be asked a few general health questions to ensure your safety and discuss your desired outcomes. Your answers may suggest the areas of your body on which to focus the massage.

You will be properly and respectfully covered by towels at all times for your warmth and security. A light oil or cream will be used during  your massage to allow your muscles to be worked without causing excessive friction to the skin. As the massage progresses the work may become deeper and more specific to your needs. We always encourage an open dialogue between Client and Therapist to ensure the best possible care.

For a full body massage it is best to undress down to your underwear but please don't worry as you will be covered at all times and only the part being massaged will be uncovered.

You should always make sure you are comfortable during your massage. At any time you can move to make yourself more comfortable and relaxed. Some people like to talk whilst others like to close their eyes or fall asleep. You can also ask questions at any time.
