Swedish Massage in Peebles

Swedish massage therapies help shortens recovery time from muscular strain by removing metabolic wastes from the tissues. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple. Swedish massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time.

Swedish massage therapy reduces stress and having a regular massage is good way of managing stress. Swedish massage therapies feel good, are relaxing, invigorating and promote health and well being. It is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology as opposed to energy work that is more common in Asian-style massage and is perhaps the most common and best-known type of massage.

If you need deeper work and can tolerate more pressure to get relief from chronic muscle pain, it’s better to book a deep tissue remedial or sports massage, which are other forms of massage.  If you have pain, it will may take a series of consultations to get results.

Swedish massage and other types of therapeutic massage are performed by trained, licensed massage therapists such as me Melanie Riley. A Swedish massage can be slow and gentle, or vigorous and bracing, depending on the therapist’s personal style and what he or she is trying to achieve.

Swedish massage is the foundation for other types of Western massage, including sports massage or remedial massage.
