Swedish Massage - Release your tension and stress


What is Swedish Massage?

It is generally accepted that Swedish Massage gets its name from Per Henrik Ling who in the 1800's looked at Eastern and Western massage traditions and developed his own scientific system of massage movements which forms the basis of many massage techniques today.

In Swedish Massage a firm pressure is used and generally speaking you are working on parts of the body that have become sore due to injury, repetitive motion or a build up of tension. The massage employs long, smooth strokes to warm up the muscles, followed by kneading, friction and hacking or tapping movements all of which work together to promote relaxation and ease tired and aching muscles. Hands Free Massage can also be combined with Swedish Massage to give an all over deep and therapeutic treatment.

The Swedish Massage Session

The treatment will start with a consultation to gather information regarding your symptoms and general health to allow a blend of oils to be recommended for your particular needs. Janice will then leave the room to allow you to undress and get on the massage couch. During the massage, all parts of the body not being treated will be covered by a towel. It is recommended that you leave the oils on overnight, if possible, to gain the maximum benefits from the therapeutic properties of the oils.

Each appointment allows time to review your last treatment, your needs for the present treatment and time to relax at the end. Our aim is to provide you with an ‘oasis’ in which to unwind and escape the pressures of day to day living, whilst giving restorative care to your body. 

If you have a medical condition you may have to consult your GP before undertaking a treatment. Please ask for further information.
