If you have ever been to a massage centre in the Melbourne area, you probably have found that there are a wide range of options available. One of them will undoubtedly be Swedish massage. Swedish massage is one of the most popular types of massage out there and is the ultimate massage if you are looking for relaxation and stress relief. Swedish massage was, unsurprisingly, developed by two Swedes and was designed to increase blood flow in the body, especially to the heart.
In order to determine if Swedish massage in Melbourne is right for you, you will want to understand what goes into it. With Swedish massage, five different strokes are used in order to achieve different things. For instance, one of the strokes is known as "friction" and is the application of firm pressure done in a circular motion around knots in order to release them. Another type of stroke is effleurage. It is a light stroke that is used in order to encourage blood flow.
Usually with Swedish massage in Melbourne, you will find that the practitioner will use oil or lotion in order to minimise the amount of friction on the skin. You will also, in most cases, be asked to disrobe during a Swedish massage. Towels and sheets are certainly available but if this makes you uncomfortable, another type of massage, like Thai massage, may be more your style since you will remain fully clothed for the duration of the treatment.
