Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is what most people think of and picture as soon as anyone mentions the word massage.

Just as with many other forms of massage therapy, Swedish massage can provide many benefits to the recipient. Using firm, gentle pressure I will draw on the techniques developed by Per Henrik Ling to ease aches and pains, create flexibility, provide relaxation and increase oxygen in the blood. If you are stressed and in need of some relaxation, Swedish massage therapy may be for you.

Each treatment will be tailored to the individual's need; therefore a full consultation will take place prior to the initial treatment, and a mini consultation before all following treatments.

What can I expect in a treatment?

Each treatment will be tailored to your specific needs and preferences. If you don't yet have much experience of massage and are not quite sure of what you like, why not book a full body massage to get a feel for the sensations of massage across different parts of your body and what you feel most comfortable with?

A treatment can be either 30 minutes or 60 minutes (please allow 60 minutes for a full body treatment, and an additional 20 minutes for your first consultation). Depending on your needs a treatment can be for 30 mins or 60 mins, and I am happy to massage any section of your body.

For the treatment you will be lying on a consultation table, wearing only the bottom part of your underwear, and I will cover the whole of your body with towels, only the part of the body that I am working on will be exposed, to preserve your modesty, also to keep you warm during treatment. It is possible to have a combination of Reiki and Massage, ask me when booking an appointment and I can tailor the treatment to suit individual your needs.
