Swedish Massage: What to expect
Swedish massage is a more basic form of massage that comes from the western world, using pressure which helps bring a feeling of relaxation and calmness. The massage usually begins where you’re lying face down on the massage bed with your head rested in a u-shaped face cradle to ensure your spine is neutrally aligned.
Following this, the next step of your Swedish massage will consist of your therapist lubricating the skin with relaxing, calming massage oil performing a range of massage strokes. Performing a range of massage strokes ensures your muscles are warmed up accordingly, subsequently releasing muscle tension while breaking muscle knots.
Generally, your masseuse starts by working on your back, employing various massage strokes which include a combination of friction, kneading, tapping and stretching.
What to or what not to wear
During a Swedish massage you’re usually nude with a sheet placed over you to maintain modesty. During the therapy, your masseuse removes only areas of the sheet which he or she is working on to ensure you’re comfortable during the process of your massage.
(Please note, at the height of customer satisfaction here at the Siamease Thai Spa, we want you to feel comfortable therefore, if you’d prefer to keep you’re underwear on we’re more than happy to accommodate this.)
Swedish Massage: The Benefits
The Swedish massage is best-known for relaxing the entire body though it’s benefits extend much further than one might think. The Swedish massage is also great for increasing oxygen levels in the blood, tapering muscle toxins, flexibility, easing tension and improving body circulation.
Adjacent to this, a recent study by the National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine found volunteers who received a 45-minute Swedish massage treatment experienced a large decline in stress levels and an increase in the amount of white blood cells which play a huge part in the human immune system.
Here at the Siamease Thai Spa Manchester, our experts are trained to use more pressure around the more thicker parts of the body which have more muscle, and to relax pressure on the more bonier parts of the body, in order to bring maximum relief and relaxation.
