What is a Swedish Massage?

A Swedish massage and other types of therapeutic massages can be slow and gentle, or vigorous and deep depending on what you request from your massage therapist. A Swedish massage aims to induce relaxation. Depending on the masseur a combination of strokes to the muscles and surrounding tissues can be used which include sliding, kneading, tapping, vibration and friction; the most commonly used and very relaxing sliding strokes.

What is a Swedish Massage?

A Swedish massage is a popular and widely practiced form of massage therapy that involves a variety of techniques designed to relax muscles and promote overall well-being.

The primary goals of a Swedish massage are to relax the entire body, reduce muscle tension, and improve circulation and flexibility. It is typically performed on a massage table with the client undressed (or partially undressed) and covered with a sheet or towel. The massage therapist uses massage oils or lotions to facilitate smooth and gliding movements during the session.

Swedish massage is known for its therapeutic benefits and is often used to alleviate stress, promote relaxation, and address muscular tension. It is a versatile form of massage that can be adapted to individual preferences and needs.

Some techniques that can happen a Swedish massage include:

  1. Effleurage: Long, sweeping strokes that glide over the body, helping to relax the muscles and improve circulation.
  2. Petrissage: Kneading and squeezing motions, which involve picking up, squeezing, and then releasing the muscles. This helps to release tension and improve blood flow.
  3. Friction: Deep, circular movements that apply pressure to specific points. This technique is often used to address knots and tension in the muscles.
  4. Tapotement: Rapid tapping, pounding, or percussion movements, which can help stimulate the muscles and invigorate the body.
  5. Vibration/Shaking: Fine, rhythmic movements that involve shaking or vibrating the body part being massaged, promoting relaxation.

Massage is beneficial to help return blood flow to the heart increasing oxygen levels in the blood and improving circulation and getting rid of toxins. It also helps to improve flexibility and reduce tension.

I had pain in my foot the day before delivery of my baby, which disappeared with the csec pain meds and returned with a vengeance after I was discharged. I was in so much misery, I consulted Health2mama and they immediately sent someone the next afternoon 2pm to do a home visit. Megha was very detailed and asked many questions to understand my problem. The session went really well. By evening time, I was able to walk in the mall much more comfortably without an obvious limp! Subsequently the pain came and went but it eventually healed totally. So glad I came across Health2u!

I first sought out physio after a really bad back flare up - bulging disc in the lower back which affected my movement severely. Kai Ling did a wonderful job at recommending exercises to help me get back stronger, and does release massages really well. My aches always get much better after she works on my back, neck, etc.

I was having sacroiliac joint pain from pregnancy which was interfering with my exercise routine. Ezora was very knowledgeable in identifying the problems, and she not only helped to release my tight muscles but also taught me mobilisations and stretches that would specifically target my issues. I've been chugging along with her help and am very grateful for her expertise, as well as her encouragement to keep up with my activity level. Thanks! Updating to also add that during my second pregnancy, I saw both Ezora and Megha for pain in my piriformis and elsewhere, and as before they were a great help.

I had a green stick right arm fracture and was on a cast for 2 weeks, causing muscle weakness and stiffness. Requested for home base therapy and Ms Rebecca arranged for physiotherapist Ms Tay Kai Ling to come over. She was punctual for the appointment and i was really satisfied with the way she massage my stiff arm.

Katie is an amazing trainer. She is genuinely interested in helping you and she always gives you great advice(women’s health, fitness, diet etc). I cannot highly recommend her enough 🙏 She always writes down exercise routine each time for me (customised to what you need). Very well organised person. She remembers your limits and try to push you in a positive way to increase that limits to make sure you get stronger. She also makes every sessions interesting and fun but still very challenging I am very thankful to her. Thank you Katie ☺️

Had postpartum physio as I had DR after having my first born in 2021. The techniques taught during the physio were useful and I am back again to using the app to help resolve the DR and mummy tummy after having my 2nd baby. Thanks for providing an easy and convenient way for us to follow the program! 😊 Update: I returned for musculpting and training with Megha! I had hit a plateau in improvement and I wanted faster results. Made the right decision, as my DR had reduced to only 1 finger gap at belly button and fully closed at the upper and lower sections. Thanks Megha for the tips and correcting me so that I acheive maximum effectiveness in the exercises! She is super friendly and encouraging! 😊😊
