Body Massage (also referred to as Swedish Massage) has its roots in Eastern Medicine and uses oil or cream. The massage routine covers the full body using traditional massage techniques. This is the UK’s standard full body massage used throughout the industry and it also forms the basis for all advanced massage courses such as Deep Tissue Massage and Hot Stones Massage. It is particularly recognised for its ability to provide mental and physical relaxation as well as assisting joint mobility. Practitioners use a combination of gentle flowing massage strokes along with friction, kneading, percussion and stimulation of pressure points. .
