Booking a treatment for a Swedish massage can be an exciting prospect for many, but it can also make some folks feel anxious or nervous. This pre-treatment anxiety can be off-putting and prevent people from booking a treatment. We hope this blog can help those who are feeling uneasy about Swedish massage.

Our therapist, Tita answers your most frequently asked questions:

1. What is Swedish massage?

Swedish massage is one of the most popular massage techniques and it is known for its long flowing strokes, kneading and circular movements. It is designed to promote relaxation, improve circulation, reduce muscular tension and alleviate joint stiffness. It can also help to reduce stress and anxiety. A Swedish massage is a great way to unwind and relax after a long day at work.

2. Will the treatment be painful?

A Swedish massage should feel relaxing overall, but certain areas may cause temporary discomfort. This is a sign of the muscles being worked on and is a natural response to the massage. The more treatments you have, the less pain you should experience. Swedish massage is a lighter massage, compared to Sports massage, so you should not expect to experience a lot of pain at any point. If you do feel pain, it is important to notify the therapist so they can adjust their technique.

3. What if I fall asleep during the treatment?

It is perfectly normal to fall asleep during a Swedish massage. The aim of the massage is to promote relaxation and reduce stress, so falling asleep is actually a compliment to the masseuse. If you do find yourself drifting off during your massage, don’t worry – the massage therapist will adjust the pressure and techniques accordingly. You will still reap the same benefits of the massage, even if you doze off.

4. How do I know what type of massage is right for me?

Deciding which treatment to choose can be confusing. Swedish massage is generally a safe choice and is a good option for people who are new to massage. It typically involves lighter pressure, which makes it suitable for a variety of needs. Depending on your specific needs, symptoms, and lifestyle, you may want to discuss your needs with your therapist to determine the best treatment for you. Your therapist will be able to help you decide which massage technique is best suited for your individual needs.

5. Do I need to prepare for my massage treatment?

There are no set instructions, but our therapists have some tips to help you feel more relaxed during your treatment. Dress comfortably, avoid moisturisers/body lotions and avoid eating just before your treatment. It is also important to stay well hydrated, so make sure to drink plenty of water before and after your massage.
