WHAT IS SWEDISH or RELAXATION MASSAGE

Swedish massage is designed to relax muscles and calm you. A soothing environment using music specifically designed for this along with soft towels makes it easy for you to begin to relax.

The Therapist may take you through breathing exercises to encourage further relaxation. Unlike remedial massage where oil may not be used at all – oils or lotions are used. A combination of effleurage, petrisage and Tapotement are used. The pressure is superficial and firm.

During the relaxation massage the therapists may:

• Eases tight aching muscles
• Promotes deep relaxation
• Combats the chronic affects of stress and tension

After the treatment, you may feel tired but after several massages will feel energised. It is recommended that you drink a couple of extra glasses of water to eliminate toxins from the body.
