Swedish massage finds its roots in the western concepts of physiology and anatomy - it’s all about working with the muscles to relieve stress and pain. On the other hand, Asian massage focuses on energy work, and ‘Chi’, to restore the mind and body balance. Each has its own benefits, but for your first foray into the world of remedial therapy, Swedish massage is generally a pretty great place to start.
Originally designed to increase blood flow, Swedish massage comes with a whole host of benefits; not only in terms of physical relief, but also in respect to your emotional wellbeing. Often, one treatment is enough to see immediate benefits, but here’s what you can expect to take away from regular sessions:
Depending on your individual preferences and concerns, Swedish massage technique can vary from gentle to vigorous. If you’re after something more relaxing, you might ask your therapist to focus on long, smooth, gliding strokes. On the other hand, if you have specific areas of tension or tightness, your therapist can focus on kneading, tapping and friction. Treatments generally last anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on your budget, preference and how stressful a day, week or month you’ve had!
