A Swedish massage is commonly known as a classic massage, it is one of the most common types of massages to help with relaxation and reduce muscle aches. The 5 main techniques used in this type of massage is; stroking/gliding, kneading, rubbing, tapping or pounding and vibrating. Swedish massages help improve circulation and soothe muscles and ultimately help you feel more relaxed.
This type of massage helps reduce chronic pain. It uses firm pressure along with firm strokes to help reach the deeper layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia. This type of stiffness can be caused by incorrect use or overuse of the muscle tissues. Deep tissue massage helps break down the muscle ‘knots’, which are bands of rigid tissue which may disrupt circulation – causing pain.
Your massage will either be carried out by an experienced our expert Sports Therapist or Chartered Physiotherapists. We provide massage services in our Newcastle City Centre, Gosforth and Darras Hall branches.
We generally recommend a 60-minute initial assessment for massage so we can find out about you and your needs. Follow up appointments can be booked for either 30 minute or 60-minute appointment lengths.
