Everyone needs a little bit of TLC from time to time, especially in a fast-paced, non-stop place like Sydney. Fortunately, we here at Bookwell have rounded up some of the top Swedish massage therapists in our fair harbour city, ready to work you, your muscles and your mind into a blissful state of relaxation.
Considered the most common type of massage in the western world, Swedish massage is performed by trained and licensed therapists who work to ease muscle tension, relieve pain, and reduce mental stress. When it comes to well-rounded, entry level physical therapies, Swedish massage is pretty hard to beat.
When you first head in for your massage, you’ll be asked to de-robe (your modesty covered with a towel or sheet, of course), lie face down, and your therapist will begin to massage the skin with the aid of oil. They’ll perform various massage techniques, covering everything from long, smooth strokes towards the heart, to kneading and cupping, and deep muscle penetration. These techniques work to warm up and loosen the muscles, releasing tension and gradually breaking up those nagging knots you can definitely feel, but just can’t seem to get rid of.
Your Swedish massage session will generally finish up with a glass of water, to restore hydration, and if you’re lucky, a warm cup of herbal tea to round things out. Much Zen, very relax.
Remember, when it comes to remedial therapy, there’s no ‘miracle cure’, or quick fix: the more sessions you go for, the better your results will be. But who really needs an excuse to spend an hour being massaged and pampered? We’re definitely convinced.
So, if you’re ready to treat yourself to a relaxing Swedish massage in Sydney, look no further than Bookwell for some of the top therapists in town.
