Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage Swedish Massage

A classic treatment that relaxes body and mind, aids healing, nourishes the internal systems and promotes good health. The strokes help to ease muscle tension and promote relaxation. The perfect regular addition to your health and wellness routine.

If it is your first visit you will be required to fill in a consultation form to make sure it is safe to proceed with the treatment. You will receive your treatment with some nourishing organic massage oil. Treatments can last half an hour (back, neck and arms, or legs and feet), 60 minutes for a full body massage, or 90 minutes for a longer full body treatment. Once it is over you will be given your aftercare advice.

Anyone can experience the benefits of this treatment. Tired muscles that are on the go at work all day will appreciate the soothing effects of this treatment. A Swedish massage can also aid relaxation and help manage some of the symptoms of stress. The 30 minute sessions are great for those who have aching legs and feet or tired and stiff shoulders and want these areas treated in more depth. Full body sessions are great for those looking for a relaxing all over treatment to promote health and well-being.

There are certain instances where it is inadvisable to have a massage, or where seeking your GPs permission before your appointment will be necessary. Please refer to the Contraindications page to see if any of your medical conditions fall within this group. This is essential to avoid disappointment at the time of your appointment as I will not be able to proceed with the treatment if you have a contraindicated condition and no written permission from your GP.
Swedish massage will not be given in instances of kidney conditions; conditions where the client has a loss of sensation, including neuropathy or post-surgery trauma where nerves have been damaged; any disease where there is nerve damage; clients taking anti-coagulants (in which case a doctor's permission will be required); any cardio-vascular conditions (doctor's permission required); fever; infectious diseases; recent stroke; severe haemophilia; and pregnancy (during first trimester). If you have a history of cancer you can still receive a relaxation massage. This is where the traditional Swedish strokes are adapted to take into account your treatment history. Relaxation massages use a lighter pressure and can assist in reducing stress. You will need to fill in a more detailed health history and ensure that your doctor is aware that you intend to receive massage therapy.
