Swedish Massage Glasgow Clinic

Swedish Massage Glasgow Clinic
Swedish Massage is the most popular style of massage in the world. When you think of a massage where a client lies on a couch or bed and the massage therapist performs a massage using an oil and their hands to work on the clients skin then it will include some Swedish massage techniques. The term swedish massage dates back to the 19th Centuary and includes a system of "movements" that form the basis of Swedish massage.

During a massage treatment in our Glasgow clinic, you can often recognise the five classic swedish massage movements depending on what your body feels:-

  • The therapist may start with Effleurage - by sliding or gliding their hands accross the body to relax and cover the area with oil
  • The may then use petrissage (or kneading) to work into areas, often larger muscle groups. The may use fingers, the heel of the hand or the fist.
  • At some point you may feel the massage stroke speed up and the area become warm, the therapist is most likely using friction
  • If you feel as if the therapist is shaking the areaathen this will be another swedish massage stroke - vibration/shaking.
  • The final classic swedish massage technique is tapotment a rythmic tapping which when more vigourous may be referred to as hacking.
  • The different Swedish massage strokes are used at different times in the massage depending on what the therapist feels the clients body and muscles need.

    Swedish Massage since the 19th Century

    The five strokes used developed for " Swedish Massage" in the 19th Centuary still form fundamental parts of most modern massage treatments. However new skills, techniques and methods have been found and these can be incorporated into the therapists repetoire. In our Swedish Massage Glasgow clinic, our Therapeutic Massage treatment allows the therapists to use Swedish massage along with other skills they have learnt or developed with experience to give the client the best possible treatment. The ability to use other more recent techniques as well as the five swedish massage techniques mean the client can receive the best possible treatment.

    The clinic price list and times for Swedish style massage treatments are shown below, however other massage therapies that use Swedish massage techniques include: Pregnancy Massage | Sports Massage | Hot Stone Massage | Aromatherapy Massage
