The most common type of massage at the spa is Swedish massage. This massage combines various hands-on techniques including kneading, cross-fiber friction and gliding to break up muscle knots, which called adhesion.                           

Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of physiology and anatomy as opposed to energy work. It can be gentle and slow, or vigorous and bracing, depending on therapist what they wants to achieve.


Swedish massage is performed by a licensed and trained massage therapist who lubricates the skin with massage oil and which generally takes 50 to 60 minutes to massage the whole body.

The cost of a this massage will vary, depending on whether you go to a resort, destination spa, a spa; go to a massage therapist or a chain like Massage Envy. Swedish massage pricing will also depend on what part of the country you live and how luxurious the spa is.

Is it for you?

If you are not a regular spa goer, we would recommend you to start with Swedish massage. It's generally perfect for new goers. You will be drapped only in a towel and the therapists will uncover only the part of the body (s)he is working on.
