Swedish massage is one of the most popular forms of massage on the market. Whether it’s your first time on the massage table, or you’re simply after a versatile, well-rounded treatment to promote relaxation and relieve muscle tension, you can’t go past the Swedish variety. Fortunately, Perth is home to some of the top Swedish massage therapists in town.
Using targeted techniques such as pressure, kneading, tapping, and slow, gentle stretching of the muscles, Swedish massage really does cover all bases, from head to toe.
Swedish massage is undoubtedly a great entry level treatment, perfect for people of all ages, shapes and sizes, but that’s not to say it comes without significant therapeutic value. So what kind of benefits can you expect from Swedish massage?
Here’s just a taste:
Additionally, Swedish massage is a great way to relieve stress and anxiety. Massage therapists work to foster an environment which evokes a sense of total zen. Picture this: a temperate, dark room; soft, relaxing music; warm, fragrant oils and a comfortable massage table - not too hard, not too soft. Seriously, how could you not come away from that feeling relaxed and rejuvenated?
Remember, it’s important to communicate with your Swedish massage therapist both before, during and after your treatment, in order to get the best possible results (and make the most of your hard-earned dosh!) Massage therapists are fully trained professionals, but they’re not mind readers, so keep that line of communication open. Want a little more, or maybe a little less pressure? Don’t be afraid to speak up!
