Swedish massage therapy is also popularly known as relaxation massage. This is because its primary focus lies in relaxing the body. Our Swedish massage therapists are well versed with the techniques used in this massage.

They start the massage by applying gentle pressure to the body to smoothly manipulate body tissues. Then they use long gliding strokes which move along the direction of blood returning to heart. Their additional rubbing and kneading of the body’s outer tissue levels helps relax both the mind and body. If required, they may also use additional massage techniques like tapping, friction, vibration and shaking to apply pressure between muscles and bones.
