What is Swedish massage?

Swedish massage is the most common type of massage practised in the west today. It is frequently used in spas, and is often a good massage to choose if you haven’t experienced a massage before. Your therapist will use long, flowing, smooth strokes, combined with rhythmic kneading, tapping and frictions to the top layers of your muscles, as well as movements of the joints and gentle stretches. Swedish massage can be both relaxing, slow and gentle or energising, vigorous and stimulating. Your therapist will adjust the pressure, technique and style to meet your individual needs and preference.

The tradition of massage is as old as man himself; because to hold or rub an injured part is an instinctive reaction to pain or discomfort. Today, massage is a multidimensional skill encompassing a wide variety of ever evolving techniques, many of which have their roots in the Swedish massage system. Swedish massage is most commonly used for relaxation, it’s many benefits include improving your health and well-being, improving your circulation, soothing your muscles, easing muscular pain by flushing out toxins, helping to keep muscles, ligaments and tendons supple and reducing emotional and physical stress.

IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

Stress can manifest itself as physical, emotional or spiritual discord, especially in today’s world where we do not give enough time to ourselves: time to rest, to heal and to repair …. We always seem to be rushing and never stopping to listen to the warning messages our bodies send us. Pain is the body’s last resort; it is a result of not listening to those warnings. By actually taking time out to regularly maintain our bodies by choosing to receive a massage, we are less prone to stress and illness. We service and MOT our cars, why not our bodies? After all, they have to last us a lifetime.

Love yourself enough

  • I have been seeing Sally for about 8 months. When I first came I was getting headaches all the time. My neck, shoulders and back were always tight and painful, it was really bad. Sally is fantastic, she got rid of so many knots in my neck and shoulders. I feel so much better and my headaches have virtually gone. I used to take Paracetamol a lot of the time, now I hardly use them. I see Sally once a fortnight and it’s the best thing I do for myself.

  • After suffering with facial pain and sinus problems for more than two years I decided to try massage for stress relief. I can honestly say that after only two treatments from Sally my symptoms have started to ease and my energy levels have increased. Sally offers a comfortable and professional service and I would highly recommend the remedial facial and neck massage.

  • A fantastic experience from online booking through to the after service. Not only do you get one of the most robust, targeted and non-hurried massages going (I have the remedial sessions), but there's lots of science stuff to go with it. So when you have an ache, you don't just get a knot worked on, you get a proper explanation of what's going on with your posture to create it in the first place, a look at an iPad app with photos of posture and detailed background, then a massage focussed on that issue, as well as some exercises emailed home afterwards so that you try and fix what the issue was over the long term. Plus the room itself is really lovely, modern and relaxing, and Sally is a very welcoming, skilled practitioner. Can't think why you'd want to get a massage anywhere else!

  • My first time with Sally and the experience was absolutely fabulous! I went to her exhausted , stressed and out of sorts needing pampering and healing. Her room is a haven! Such a tranquil environment and the attention to detail with everything a real treat! Peppermint tea, beautiful music and the gorgeous smell of oils in the air. She selected aromatherapy oils to suit my needs and then followed the most blissful full body massage which was the best treatment I have ever had. Her massage technique is amazing, and I came out feeling like a new person! The next day I woke up feeling energised and happy! I have been to many places where I feel as if it's been rushed and not quite right. Little things missing and with Sally you feel that she really loves what she does and focuses completely on what your body and mind needs. I can't wait for my next treatment. Thank you Sally, so glad I've found you! :0)

  • I've suffered for a number of years with lower back, neck and shoulder pain taking stronger pain killers over time. A work colleague recommended Sally and the remedial massage she offers. I couldn't believe how much pain had been relieved after the first treatment on my lower back. I could bend and pick goods off the bottom shelf of a supermarket, something I struggled with a week before. Three sessions on my neck and shoulder followed, relieving so much pain from that area - I can actually look over my right shoulder without moving my whole upper body. A second session on my lower back has left me in such a good place now, far less pain and a good understanding of why the pain occurred i.e. bad posture. I'm recommending Sally to friends and family with muscle pain similar to mine. The whole experience is so friendly, relaxing, the scent, the music and the heated massage table. Pain killers no longer required.
