Why Swedish Massage is so Popular
It is usually the greatest option to begin with when visiting a spa or massage studio for the first time. Many people consider it to be the best introduction to massage therapy because it is a more gentle relaxing soothing type of massage compared to deep tissue and deep kneading deeper tissue massages of the east, which often challenge your flexibility.
We also offer couples massage – a dual booking, where you can have your massages in the same room as each other, at the same time.

The Five Fundamental Techniques
Swedish massage employs five fundamental techniques: effleurage (gliding, sweeping), petrissage techniques (kneading, rolling, wringing), friction (warming), tapotement (percussion), and vibration (trembling).
Frictions and Effleurage, which consists of lengthy, gliding, sweeping strokes and Frictions to warm the muscles and work deeply into the tissues to alleviate tension and discomfort. A very soothing massage that can assist with the build-up of tension produced by extended periods of sitting at a desk or computer, going to the gym more than twice a week, playing sports, or the general build-up of stress from daily life.
Tapotement is a type of percussive stroke that stimulates nerves, muscles, and circulation in a rhythmic manner. These strokes frequently indicate the conclusion of a section of massage.
Petrissage uses kneading, rolling, wringing, and lifting strokes which help loosen up knotted and bound muscles and soft tissue, activate nerve endings, which in turn stimulates cell repair and regeneration, encouraging deep relaxation in tissues and muscles, leaving you feeling relaxed.
