swedish (holistic) massage

What is Swedish Massage

Swedish, or holistic massage is the manipulation of the superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue.

Swedish massage uses a variety of movements over the body to treat and prevent a large number of complaints or can be used for relaxation.

Benefits of Swedish Massage
Who Can Enjoy a Swedish

Swedish massage can be enjoyed by anyone wishing to reduce stress, anxiety or promote relaxation.

A full consultation will be carried out prior to your first treatment to ensure that an Swedish massage is right for you and to devise an individual treatment plan to meet your specific needs.

What Happens During a  Swedish Massage Treatment 

You will be asked to remove appropriate clothing in private and make yourself comfortable on the massage couch, with large towels to cover you.

During the massage, only the part of your body being massaged will be exposed in order to protect your modesty. Massage lotion will be applied to the skin to allow free movement of the massage techniques and to nourish the skin.

A full body massage usually treats the head, neck, back, shoulders, chest, arms and legs, although this can be tailored to suit your individual needs or preferences.

After-Care Advice

Swedish massage has a detoxifying effect on the body and you can encourage this by drinking plenty of water and avoiding caffeine, nicotine and alcohol for the next 24 hours. Also try to avoid any strenuous exercise for 24 hours following treatment and try to rest and allow your body to heal from within.
