Are you feeling completely stressed out and tense — or just need some time to yourself for quiet and relaxation? If so, consider trying our signature Swedish massage.
What is a Swedish massage?
The formal name, stemming from Sweden, simply means ‘classic massage’. This is exactly what you will experience — a peaceful and gentle pressure massage to promote relaxation and to ease any muscle tension you may be experiencing. The main characteristics of a Swedish massage include: kneading, gliding and stroking the muscles, as well as rubbing and light tapping to promote circulation and soothe tired and achy muscles.
Is Our Signature Swedish Massage Right for You?
If you are a person who seems to be more sensitive to touch, then this is for you. Our highly skilled therapists use soft and longer strokes to encourage relaxation and muscle release. Not only does a Swedish massage provide calming benefits, it is also good for improving the circulation and oxygen flow throughout the blood, keeps muscles limber, rouses the nervous system, flushes out toxins and reduces mental and physical stress.
We also offer many other types of massages, such as our Japanese Hot Stone massage, Deep Tissue and Pregnancy Massage, Warm Shell and Bamboo Massage — along with many more. Most men and women opt for the Swedish massage for their first time, though, and this is what makes it our most popular one!
What is it Like to Get a Swedish Massage?
Massages are typically 30 to 90 minutes in length, depending on what you want, but you should really plan on an hour massage to get the most benefit from the process. You will be taken to a private room with a massage table and will be asked to remove as much clothing as you are comfortable with and then wrap yourself in a large towel or light sheet once the therapist leaves the room. If you are nervous, don’t be! Once the therapist returns, he or she will dim the lights and some like to play soft background music to help you unwind. Your body is never exposed. The therapist will simply uncover individual parts as he or she begins the massage.
Your therapist will make sure that you are as comfortable as possible and will ask you if you would like to sleep during it, if you would like to chat, if you would prefer no music, etc. Everything is entirely up to you and what you would like during your massage.
Prepare to Be Swept Away!
After your massage, you will feel completely relaxed, stress-free and sometimes, even sleepy. Take your time getting dressed and savor how incredible your body feels! You will be kicking yourself for not doing this sooner! Our first-time clients soon become repeat customers after experiencing their first massage and we promise that you will be scheduling another one before you even walk out the door!
