Swedish Massage

Full Body Therapy

The Swedish or holistic massage is the most common and best known type of massage in the West. Based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology you will find this non-erotic massage relaxing and effective at stimulating circulation, flushing the circulatory system, releasing tight muscles, restoring range of motion, and relieving pain.

Your session will begin with a short consultation for me to understand your needs - are you experiencing any pain, stiffness or aches for example. You can give me guidance on whether you want light relaxing pressure or a more firm massage to ease muscle tension.  Throughout the massage you will be covered shoulder to toes by at least two towels with only the area of the body being massaged at any one time uncovered. 

I will use techniques such as efleurage, petrissage, tapotment, friction and vibration in this massage. The Swedish massage is known for a wide range of benefits such as endorphin release to improve mood, flushing out of metabolic byproducts, increased range of motion, support for healthy immune system, increase in nutrient supply to muscles, increase in energy and 
improved sleep among many others.
