Best for: all-out relaxation
This massage combines long smooth strokes with muscle ‘kneading’ in circular motions to soothe knots and ease tension. Lotion is usually involved (so you’ll smell great too), or aromatherapy oils. Swedish massage is all about relaxation (trying not to nod off is the only ‘tension’ you’ll be feeling throughout), while the adjustment of pressure will really get to work on any muscle concerns. A dribble patch on the massage table is likely.
