Swedish massage is one of our top requests from clients at Chinese Massage Therapy. It’s one of the most common types of massage and is a great starting place for those new to massage. Our Swedish massage experts will provide a body massage that leaves you relaxed and ready to face the day.
We recommend it to those who have never tried massage before, people with full-body tension, and those who are sensitive to touch. This option is gentle and soothing, and the massage isn’t as rough as some other massage methods. Despite the light strokes and soothing nature, it will still release muscle knots and provide relief from tension.
The massage therapist will use a variety of techniques, including:
Long, flowing strokes in the direction of the heart
Deep circular motions
Vibration and tapping
Passive joint movement techniques
Before the massage, we’ll ask you to undress to your level of comfort so we can massage more effectively. Usually, a Swedish massage will last for 60–90 minutes.
If you want to introduce a friend or relative to massages, you can pick up a massage gift card during your next visit and recommend a Swedish massage! Call or stop by our studio in Pittsburgh, PA today to relax and soothe your body.
