What is Swedish Massage?

The primary goal with a Swedish massage is to relax the body and mind while hydrating the skin and tissues. A combination of movements combine to create a relaxing hands-on experience. Movements in Swedish massage are directed toward the heard, which enhances venous blood flow and helps your circulatory system.

 

With light movements, a Swedish massage relaxes the whole body. A whole body Swedish massage can massage the whole body, including the neck, arms, stomach, fronts and backs of legs, glutes, and back. It’s a great way to calm tissues and relax.

Why would I prefer a Swedish Massage?

Swedish Massage is the most basic modality of massage. Swedish is lighter massage, typically involving mainly effleurage, or gliding movements. There can also be kneading, compression, and percussion, which can help relax the body. You might prefer a Swedish massage if you are searching for more relaxation or lighter treatments. A Deep Tissue Massage can be incorporated with your Swedish, but if you’re focusing on relaxation and not so much on fixing a problematic area, you might want to try a standard Swedish massage.

 

Typically,  a full body Swedish massage will take about an hour.

 

It’s easy to incorporate almost any other modality with a Swedish massage. Just be sure to talk to your Massage Therapist first.

 

Each of our massage therapists can give you an amazing Swedish Massage.
