Same style, deeper pressure.
Swedish deep tissue massage can be a perfect treatment to do something truly beneficial for your body.
This style of massage has all the usual flowing and flushing type of strokes that are used in a relaxation massage, but at a deeper pressure. Swedish massage covers more of the body where as a therapeutic massage for example, might focus the majority of your session time in a more localised area. However, our Deep Tissue Swedish Massage Therapists are happy to provide a more localised treatment if that is what you would prefer through your treatment.
As with the Swedish Relaxation Massage 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 as opposed to ‘fight and flight’. This changes the hormonal secretions throughout different systems in your body, allowing you to rest, heal and regenerate. This is ideal for your average Wellington City lifestyle especially if you work a fairly sedentary job and have a busy home life, however, this style of massage is also perfect for athletes seeking flushing for pre and post activity.
Our Level 5 therapist are unable to provide specific injury assessment, rehabilitation treatment techniques or home care advice, and do not provide insurance rebates. They will be happy to refer you to one of our other therapists if needed.
