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
to live a healthy lifestyle

What Our Clients Say

  • 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 immediately felt at ease when I visited for the first time. Sally is very skilled at remedial massage and acupuncture. She took a lot of time to understand the problem and give the treatment. I started to feel the benefits the next day and had further improvements after each session. I would thoroughly recommend Sally.

  • 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.

  • I recently went for my first appointment with Sally for a pregnancy massage due to an aching back from all the extra weight on the front! Sally made me feel welcome immediately and the atmosphere of the studio instantly made me feel relaxed. The massage experience itself was brilliant and Sally freed my back from the tight tension I went in with. The overall experience was amazing from start to finish and I'll definitely be heading back again. Thank you Sally!

  • I have been going to the gym for several years now. I’m in my mid fifties and every so often I seem to injure myself for one reason or another. I end up having to take time out from the gym until I recover. One nagging problem I had for about two years, before meeting Sally, was Golfers elbow. I had been to the Doctors a few times regarding this problem, and I was told to wear a Tennis /Golfer Elbow support strap and stay away from weights in the Gym. But when I met Sally and she told me she could help, I thought I would give it a try. Well, if I’d have known Sally could relieve the pain in just a few massages I would have gone to her a lot sooner. I wish the Doctor had told me to get help rather than fobbing me off with a couple of useless suggestions. I’m now a regular at Sally’s, she just seems to know what is needed for whatever I go to see her about, I now go for prevention massages rather than wait until I’m injured, Sally will recommend stretches to prevent future problems when she notices tight muscles. Sally gives a very relaxing, unhurried massage. Every time I see her, she is so professional and knowledgeable, and her room is so relaxing with the soft music and oil diffuser fragrances. Sally is also very easy to get on with. I would recommend Sally to anyone and in fact I already have, to more than a few.
