Swedish massage – a truly relaxing gift


There is nothing quite like a massage to leave you feeling calm and revitalised – for some people just the chance to lie down for an hour is a blessing in itself, but when you add in a personalised Swedish massage, you have a recipe for relaxation that is very hard to top.
A Swedish massage experience uses a technique which is based on five styles of long, flowing strokes developed to relieve tension and eliminate stress. Effleurage is a sliding, gliding motion which is used to warm up the muscles in preparation for the deeper tissue elements of the treatment. Petrissage is a technique which uses more pressure to reach and compress the underlying muscles with a slower, rhythmical motion to really work out any tension. Tapotement is the technical term for the element of Swedish massage that most people recognise – the gentle, percussive tapping which is used to release lymphatic build-up in the back and to stimulate blood flow around the whole body. When you add the friction massage and vibration elements into the mix, a Swedish massage experience is sure to revitalise and invigorate even the most tense and stressed person.
A Swedish massage experience is perfect for anyone who is experiencing joint stiffness and recognised as helping those with poor circulation, so if you know someone who could do with some relief from either of those conditions, a Swedish massage could be the perfect gift. Perhaps you know someone who has a stressful job and could do with a chance to unwind, or maybe someone who is planning a big event and would appreciate the chance to take a break from it all for an hour or so – a Swedish massage gift is a great way to take some time out from a hectic schedule and have all your troubles soothed away and sure to be a well received gift.
So if you are looking for a gift to give someone to really give them an excuse to some time to themselves and super soothing massage treatment as well, then a Swedish massage experience is a perfect present and one which will revive and refresh anyone.
