Aromatherapy Massage: Everything you need to know

A therapeutic massage treatment that uses essential oils to enhance your experience

Introduction to Aromatherapy Massage

Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of massage in the West. It’s the foundation for other types of Western massage, including sports massage, deep tissue massage and aromatherapy massage, and is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology, as opposed to energy work on “meridiens” or sen lines in Asian massage systems.

If it’s your first time at the spa or you don’t get massage often, Swedish massage is the best place to start.Most people get a 50 or 60-minute Swedish or deep tissue massage, but 75 or 90-minutes gives the therapist more time to work the muscle tissue and achieve results.

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. If you want deeper work and can tolerate more pressure to get relief from chronic muscle pain, it’s better to book a deep tissue massage, which is another form of Swedish massage. If you have pain, it will likely take a series of massages to get results.

Swedish massage and other types of therapeutic massage are performed by trained, licensed massage therapists. With so many different types of massage how on earth do you pick the one that will give you what you need? You can’t go wrong with a Swedish. It’s the classic – the best known and most popular option on which all other forms of massage are based. In most countries it’s just called a massage – the Swedish bit is added in the Netherlands and the UK.
