Swedish Relaxation Massage is amazing for de-stressing and anxiety management, or regular body maintenance. We view it as so much more than “just a treat.”
All our relaxation massage treatments include a consultation that doesn’t come out of the ‘table time’ you pay for. This gives us the chance to discuss your goals for the session, to select methods or techniques and plan a treatment specific to your needs at the time.
Swedish Relaxation Massage
Swedish massage is often referred to as relaxation massage and we regard it as one of the most self indulgent ways to do something truly beneficial for your mind and body.
This primary objective is to stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system to induce relaxation, and the more of your body we work on, the more effective this is. Your body enters it’s ‘rest and digest’ phase allowing you to rest, heal and regenerate. Ideal for a busy Wellington City lifestyle, especially if you work a fairly sedentary job and have a busy home life.
Some people like a very light pressure while others enjoy a firmer touch, but this style doesn’t offer ‘deep tissue,’ focused work per se. Usually flowing and flushing type of strokes are used and you will find the massage to be quite balanced, covering more of the body to bring a more holistic experience.
