Swedish massage therapy is probably the most universal type of massage, and one of the most popularly requested by our London clients here at The Massage Moghuls. It is the school of massage style from which many other massage techniques stem. Its main goal is to provide relaxation to the body and ease stiff muscles, while also promoting proper circulation. Swedish massage uses rubs with various levels of pressure, as well as long gliding strokes, which aim to promote blood circulation back to the heart. While this massage therapy generally aims to bring the body back to a relaxed state, its benefits go beyond simple relaxation. Swedish style massage also increases the level of oxygen in the blood, decreases muscle toxins, and improves flexibility and circulation, while reducing muscle tension.
Some of the most common movements used in this type of massage therapy include circular pressure applied through the hands and palms, percussion-like tapping, firm kneading, stretching, and bending. Here at The Massage Moghuls, we encourage proper communication with your on-call massage therapist before and during your therapy session to make sure your massage is tailored to your specific needs and preferences.

Swedish massage is essentially based on Western concepts and principles of anatomy and physiology as opposed to Eastern and Asian massage systems that often focus on energy work, meridians, and zen lines. A 50 to 60 minute Swedish style massage session is often enough to maximize the benefits of this form of massage, but others request for longer sessions. Longer sessions are only advised for those who suffer from very stiff muscles and require more time to work deeper muscle tissues. Your massage therapist will be able to determine whether or not you need a shorter or longer therapy session.
Swedish massage is often performed with essential massage oils, which helps lubricate the skin. Aromatherapy oils may also be used to maximize the therapeutic effects of the massage.
