What is a Swedish Massage?

A Swedish massage is one of the most popular types of massage. It is used for improving your general health. Various techniques are used in this type of massage, such as kneading, vibration and rolling. In Sweden, 'Swedish massage' literally translates to 'classic massage' and that's the best way to sum it up, a classic massage! With a Swedish massage, your whole body is targeted to restore health to softer tissues and muscles. They're known to give a calming feeling.

What Will Happen During a Swedish Massage?

Your masseur will choose essential oils and lotions to use on you depending on your skin type. These will then be gently massaged into you focusing on the areas you want worked on most. For example, if your neck and shoulders are tight, the masseur will use longer strokes to help you settle in and unwind. Swedish massages tend to focus on the bonier and more delicate parts of your body unlike a deep tissue massage. If you're having a full body Swedish massage, your masseur will usually start your session by massaging your back and neck, then move down to your legs, arms and hands. Some of the Swedish massages include a head massage (also known as an Indian head massage) to help you relax even further!
