What is a Swedish massage?
Swedish techniques form the base of professional training for all Registered Massage Therapists in Ontario. These techniques rapidly stretch soft tissues, creating complex neuromuscular effects that can help to relax the body, aid in the remodeling of scar tissue adhesions, and improve strength.
What can I expect from a Swedish massage?
A common misconception in massage therapy is that Swedish techniques are softer, or gentler in comparison to deep tissue techniques, which is not necessarily incorrect; however, in reality, a well-trained Registered Massage Therapist will often alternate between techniques, pressures or styles of massage to best suit the individual needs of each client. Swedish massages can therefore be slow and relaxing, or quick and stimulating, depending on the goals that you and your therapist set prior to and during treatment.
