Swedish Remedial Massage is one of the most common massage techniques offered, this type of massage is used to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension.
Swedish massage is ideal for people who hold a lot of tension within their bodies.
During a Swedish massage, the therapist will use:
- long strokes
- deep circular movements
- passive joint movements
A Swedish massage usally involves the whole body. You may begin on either your back or your stomach and turn over at the halfway point.
If you have an area of particular concern, such as a lower back pain, you can ask your therapist to spend more time on this area. Depending on your personal preferences, you should ask your massage therapist to use light, medium, or firm pressure.
During most full-body massages, the expectation from the therapist is you’ll be undressed. Your massage therapist will ask you to undress for your massage while they wait outside. of course It’s up to you whether or not to keep your underwear on, the therapist will be able to work around your underwear, possibly moving the waistband on your pants to gain access.
