What is Swedish massage and why should I get one!

Swedish massage is the most common massage therapy technique in Europe.

A Swedish massage focuses on overall relaxation, circulation, and physical and mental wellness.

The techniques used include gliding, kneading, tapping, stretching and friction.

A massage therapist uses these massage techniques to improve circulation and relax muscles in general.

The massage in mainly focussed on the shoulders, neck, back, legs, feet, arms and head.

There are many excellent reasons to get a Swedish massage.

So if you’re suffering from any of these issues a Swedish massage should be your first choice.

You’re stressed out. A Swedish massage is one of the best ways to ‘disconnect’ and destress your mind. Swedish massage boosts serotonin, a calming hormone, as well as oxytocin, a “feel good” hormone.

You have trouble sleeping. Your body creates melatonin, a hormone necessary for good-quality sleep. A Swedish massage increases melatonin so you sleep better.

Stress can also interfere with sleep, so lower stress levels will help bedtime become sleepy time.

When having a Swedish massage at your home or hotel room, you can go right to sleep.

You’re stiff or achy.
This can be caused by bad sitting positions, sport soreness or to the side effects of a busy life.

If you’re feeling all-over crampy a Swedish massage, with its stretching and muscle friction, will loosen your muscles and make you more flexible.

Better blood circulation will decrease painful muscles and stiffness.


You’re headache-y. Many headaches, from small head pains to full-on migraines, are caused by stress and poor circulation.

A Swedish massage goes to the heart of the problem, reducing stress and improving blood flow.

Many swear by Swedish massage as a remedy for headaches and migraines.

You just want to relax. Grumpy? Ready for some me-time?

When you get a Swedish massage, you’re really just saying “make me feel better.”

And who deserves it more than you?
