Swedish massage has been around since the 15th century. It is a popular and effective technique for healing various body parts including the neck, back, shoulders, legs, feet, elbows, and head.

Swedish massage originates from North-Western Europe techniques of physiology and anatomy. To do this kind of massage, our BEST Co. licensed professionals use a wide arsenal of hand-held pressure types which include rubbing, stroking, hitting, striking, and vibration.




Swedish Massage is the most common type of massage therapy worldwide. It involves soft, long kneading stokes also rhythmic, light tapping strokes on the top layers of muscles combined with movement of the joints.

Swedish Massage it’s energizing and relaxing by relieving muscle tension and it may even help after an injury. 

Passive or active or movement of the joints may also be part of the massage.

Swedish Massage targets the uppermost layer of muscles and aims to relieve muscle tension.

Swedish massage enables the body to heal itself by genuinely controlling and invigorating the body’s circulatory and lymphatic systems. This attempts to invigorate and help remove toxins from the body.

One of the advantages of getting a Swedish massage is the stress relief. Because it reduces muscle tension and increases circulation, this helps in the reduction of blood pressure. The massage also improves the flexibility of the muscles as well as the range of motion. In addition to that, it also increases the lymphatic system’s function by removing accumulated wastes and regulating respiratory rates. With all these benefits, you can really see why this Swedish massage is a top choice for relaxation.

  • The Swedish massage experience starts with you lying on your stomach with your clothes removed besides your underwear and a towel draped over you to maintain privacy.
  • The Swedish massage therapist will then slowly progress through the five techniques detailed above they massages your neck, back, arms and legs. When this is complete, they may ask you to turn over so they can focus on the front of these areas.
  • Be sure to tell your therapist if there are areas you’d like them to focus on or to avoid. In addition, give your therapist feedback on their pressure so that you remain relaxed and comfortable at all times.

The therapist will bring with them massage table, table sheets, oils, aromatherapy scents, towels and music. You can use your own sheets and towels if you prefer it that way. Make sure you have a place for the table to be placed and enough room for therapist to go around it.
