Generally, a more relaxing massage, we use long strokes and less pressure than a sports massage. Swedish massage is what people typically may receive from a spa environment. Swedish would tend to be a much softer style of massage and if you are looking for more pressure a sports massage would be more appropriate. The pressure by a therapist helps stimulate your nervous system to dampen down its response to pain or tightness.
What to expect
Your therapist will take a full history of current and previous injuries, discuss any important medical conditions/allergies. Once this is taken your therapist will leave the room and allow you to get changed and lie down on the bed before knocking and returning to the room.
