The Classic Massage
Swedish Massage is also known as ‘Classic Massage’. It uses 5 main techniques:
- Stroking and gliding
- Tapping or pounding
As a result of these, it can make you feel relaxed or energised and can help with cellulite, dry skin, depression, anxiety and insomnia.
What length of Swedish Massage should I book?
A full body massage takes around 90 minutes and includes back, neck, shoulders, legs, feet, arms, abdomen, chest (just under the collarbone), face and head.
If you want a 60 minute massage then you can either have a full body massage with a short amount of time spent on each area or I can miss out a few areas, like feet, hands or arms.
If you would like a 45 minute massage you may want back, neck and shoulders, or back, face & head, or legs and arms – whatever you feel would benefit you.
The areas that are massaged are entirely up to you, no matter how long an appointment you have booked, all massages are tailored to the clients needs. No two massages are the same, I don’t follow a routine, I am lead by what the client wants and needs. We will discuss what you want before your massage starts.
If you are experiencing discomfort in one or two specific areas like back, neck or legs then a remedial massage may be more suitable for you where I can target specific areas to relieve pain and discomfort. If you are unsure, just get in touch and we can discuss what is best for you.
