Swedish Massage Services
This is also referred to as body massage, using lighter strokes than sports massage called effleurage and kneading movements known as petrissage, to gently relax and soothe tired and tense muscles.
Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of massage in Western Europe. If it’s your first time having a massage, Swedish massage is the best place to start. Before the massage, please let Verity know of any injuries or other conditions you have. Things you would want to mention include areas of tightness or pain, allergies, and conditions like pregnancy. It’s best not to get a massage if you are ill.

What will happen during the appointment?
Please wear loose comfortable clothing to allow the appropriate techniques to be completed. Massage can be applied through clothing so you can remain clothed if you would rather. During the first ten minutes of the initial treatment I will ask you to complete a short form and run through a brief consultation to assess your needs.
