Swedish Massage & Relaxation Massage In Perth

 

Most people will be familiar with or at least have heard of Swedish massage.  At Duigan Chiropractic and Massage in Perth, we offer this classic massage which consists of specific strokes that have have been borrowed and adapted to create almost all other massage styles.   

What is Swedish Massage?

 

Swedish massage is a relaxation massage which encompasses a full body experiences.  The overarching aim of a Swedish massage is to promote relaxation, improve circulation and soothing aching muscles.  This technique predominantly consists of stroking, kneading, rubbing, tapping and vibrating.  

Swedish massage consists of softer touches on more delicate areas of the body, focusing on the top layers of muscles, and some firmer strokes on areas with greater muscular density.  The combination of both pressures makes for a truly relaxing and rejuvenating experiences.  

Some of the many benefits of Swedish massage include:

 

  • Decreased levels of stress hormones and anxiety
  • improved blood flow
  • increased feeling of wellbeing
  • increases muscle elasticity

What will happen during my Swedish Massage?

 

If you haven’t had a massage before, or aren’t complete sure what you are looking for, a Swedish massage is a great place to start.  

Generally speaking, Swedish massage is a gentler approach to massage.  This can suit those with low “pain” thresholds and medical conditions prohibiting firm pressures.  We also offer other great low pressure alternatives to our patients including myofacsial release and lymphatic draining.

In other cases, the style of massage may need to progress to incorporate some firmer massage techniques, such as trigger point massage, to reach the desired effect.  Your massage therapist will always discuss this with you before making any changes. 

It is important to recognise although you will likely experience an almost immediate positive response to your Swedish massage, it may take a series of massages for the positive effects to remain lasting changes.  You and your massage therapist will review your progress at the beginning of each appointment to ensure you get the most out of care with us.  

If you would prefer a deeper experience and can withstand greater pressure, then you would be better suited to a deep tissue or sports massage.

Unsure of what type of massage would suit you best?  Get in touch to let us know and our massage therapists can advise you on the most appropriate style of massage to suit your individual requirements.  Call today on 01738 248612 or send us a message via our contact portal.
