...the other best thing to come from Sweden...!

What better way to soothe away your stress than with a Swedish Massage treatment, at the hands of our competent qualified massage therapists? Swedish Massage is one of the most popular massage techniques at Maresia Spa & Massage, thought to have originated in Sweden into the technique we use today. Based on methods which promote muscle relaxation, this therapy treatment will leave you feeling relaxed and energised for the day - or evening - ahead.

How does it work?

Swedish Massage involves rubbing the muscles in your limbs, back, neck and shoulders with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart - known as effleurage - as well using other techniques such as petrissage (kneading with palms, thumbs and fingers), friction (circular pressures in focused areas), hacking (light slapping) and vibration (circular movement to shake the body). These movements stretch the muscles, and improve blood flow around the body, helping it to release toxins and promote muscle recovery. A full bodywork session at Maresia Spa & Massage usually takes up to one hour, which includes an initial brief chat with one of our therapists, who will discuss with you, any problem areas you may have.

What are the Health Benefits of Swedish Massage?

In conducted and published studies, it was found that just one session decreased cortisol levels (the hormone released when stressed) and increased levels of white blood cells - a part of the immune system which helps to fight disease. For these reasons, Swedish Massage is considered beneficial for:

  • Stress, anxiety and depression
  • Pain Management
  • Chronic muscle tension or overuse injuries

Many of our clients at Maresia Spa & Massage book regular Swedish Massage sessions to help with conditions such as Osteoporosis, Arthritis and other muscle, joint and bone related conditions.
