Swedish Massage is the most common and most popular type of therapeutic massage in the western world. Swedish massage focuses on superficial muscles of the body. Swedish massage is an excellent treatment for those with sore muscles or stiff joints. If it is just relaxation you are after then Swedish massage is perfect.
A typical session of Swedish massage at Pain Relief Limerick is 60 minutes. This incorporates a full body treatment covering every major muscle and joint. Starting with hands and arms, covering every body part including feet, legs, neck, shoulders, stomach and finishing with a really nice relaxing back massage.
You just lie back and relax.
We also offer a 30 minute treatment which covers back, neck and shoulders.
What to Expect
Swedish massage covers every body part so requires the client to undress. We recommend that you undress down to underwear, however, you are in charge and wear whatever makes you comfortable. You will be covered at all times and only the body part being treated will be exposed. Clients comfort and dignity are of paramount importance to us. We want you to feel safe and comfortable at all times during your Swedish massage.
What we recommend is that you wear comfortable, respectable underwear. Some people opt to wear a pair of shorts as well as underwear and this is perfectly acceptable. For females, we recommend that you wear a rear opening bra which can be left on and opened when massaging your back. Sports bras are not recommended as they cannot be opened to treat the back. However, if you feel more comfortable wearing a sports bra we can work through it.
The skin will be lubricated with a massage oil or wax to ensure a smooth relaxing technique throughout. The strokes are slow and controlled and designed to ensure your maximum comfort and relaxation.
There are 5 main strokes used in Swedish Massage:
Effleurage – Light sliding or gliding strokes, used for warm up.
Petrissage – Kneading strokes.
Tapotement – Rhythmic tapping strokes.
Friction – Cross fiber, along fiber or circular friction strokes.
Vibration – Shaking strokes.
After a Swedish massage it is normal to feel flushed out and tired. It is important to drink plenty water to re-hydrate your muscles and flush out all the toxins.
