Swedish Classic Massage
Classic massage also is known as “Swedish massage” a whole-body therapeutic massage treatment that works the soft tissues and muscles to help restore health – which leads to calm and balance the nervous system.
The main types of techniques that the massage therapist will use are: stroking and gliding; kneading; friction; tapping or pounding; vibration with light to medium pressure.
What to expect
The massage therapist will give you time and privacy to undress and lie down on the massage table, where you may cover yourself with towels. You can be fully naked or at your will… your therapist will uncover one little bit of you at a time depending on the area focusing on. If you’re worried about anything, don’t hesitate, just let the therapist know about it.
The therapist will use massage oils or lotions and with long, slow strokes and gentle-but-firm pulling and pressing to gently warm your muscle tissue.
Most therapists like to play music during massage, as it can help you to unwind. Don’t be afraid to say if you’d prefer not to have it, just tell the therapist and it will help you sink happily into your massage.

All types of massage make you feel thirsty and needing to go to the toilet more than usual – this is because the treatment improved the lymph circulation and your body is flushing out toxins. Also, make sure you drink plenty of water afterward.
