About This Treatment
Swedish massage is a classic full body massage that works on all major muscle groups in the body to promote total relaxation, a feeling of tranquillity and heightened wellbeing.
Swedish massage is specifically designed to relax the muscles, break up toxins and release endorphins. It also helps to flush the body tissues of uric and lactic acid and other metabolic waste.
Is this massage right for me?
Swedish massage is generally recommended for anyone new to massage therapy or a great choice for anyone wanting total relaxation. Pressures can be changed at any time to suit your needs.
Before your treatment
If it is your first visit please arrive a few minutes early as you will be required to fill out a short consultation form. This will consist of questions about your health and lifestyle and is nothing to worry about but is required before any treatment can commence. Any information provided will always be strictly confidential.
If this is not your first visit please arrive on time. Please do not arrive too early as we may be busy with the previous client. Remember to alert us if anything has changed health wise which may affect your treatment.
During your treatment
You do not need to do anything except relax and enjoy your session! If however you would like anything changed or you experience any discomfort please don’t be afraid to mention it, no offence will be taken as we want you to enjoy the session as much as possible.
After your treatment
After your treatment you should feel relaxed. Some people may experience what is known as a ‘healing crisis’
“A healing crisis, or healing reaction, is a temporary worsening of symptoms that occurs when the body is going through the process of healing itself through the elimination of toxins.”
It is important to remember that symptoms, if experienced, are only temporary and will only last up to a couple of days while the body re-balances. You may notice positive effects afterwards such as increased energy, decreased anxiety, a clearer mind and an improved sense of well-being.
Also, after your session your body temperature may have lowered so remember to bring extra clothing with you if you tend to feel the cold. As the body detoxifies during and after a session you may feel thirsty or find that you need to use the toilet more than usual. This is normal. Please remember to keep your body hydrated in the days after the treatment and try to lower your intake of caffeine and alcohol if possible. Most importantly of all, allow your body time to rest and relax!
