Questions & Answers
What are the benefits of Swedish full body massage?
There are many benefits to Swedish massage.

What is the difference between Swedish massage and deep tissue?
We alluded to this earlier. A Swedish massage is one of the best known types of massage, but people don’t always understand the differences between this and the other options. Swedish massage is the most popular with people looking to relax because it is a lighter, more gentle touch than deep tissue which uses a deeper pressure to break down muscle fibres so they can re-heal. Swedish massage is a soothing touch that will help you drift off from reality.
Does a Swedish massage hurt?
There may be some points that are more tender, because this is the nature of tight muscles. However, when people think about a painful massage, they are thinking of a deep tissue. We don’t use deep pressure and elbows during a Swedish massage. We can mix the two therapies if you’d like though, depending on your issues.
What is the purpose of a massage?
Have you ever rubbed a child’s knee when they’ve fallen? Massage is the same principle. We are highly qualified massage therapists who understands just how much to work your muscles to promote healing.
Swedish massage is a therapeutic massage which breaks down the knots in your muscles to allow your body to work as it should without blockages. When you’re booking the time that you’d like though, it’s work considering that all of your muscles connect so if you just have time for a back massage, this is fine, but your problems may come back quickly as other muscles that are still tight may pull your back out of alignment again.
What massage techniques do you use during my Swedish massage?
Each massage combines soothing effleurage techniques during a Swedish massage. We administer these with a variety of techniques, including stroking and gliding, kneading, rubbing, tapping or pounding and vibration.
What is a massage definition?
This is tricky because as you’ve already seen above, there are many distinct styles of popular massage and each one will differ according to your massage therapists, their certifications and experiences and your particular problems.
Where will I have my treatment?
We’ll have our initial conversation about your treatment plan in our consultation room, after which your therapist will show you in to the softly lit massage therapy room we’ll be using that day. Once in your massage therapy room, you’ll undress to your underwear and lie on the massage couch and cover yourself with the towels which you’ll find at the foot of the bed. You’ll then call your therapist who is waiting outside to let them know that you’re ready and happy for them to enter.
