Not Every Swedish Massage is the Same

With so many different choices to pick from when receiving a massage at a spa, the question still remains, why is the Swedish massage so popular?

Swedish massages are so popular and are often called “regular” massages partly because not every Swedish massage is the same, but as a general rule, the soft strokes that warm up and work the muscle tissue are a relaxing option that is not too vigorous and firm for providing enjoyment to the general person who visits a spa to receive a massage in Spring or Houston. If the Swedish massage is your preference, request the ‘Classic’ massage therapy treatment when you visit Urban Day Spa.

The soft massage strokes used during a Swedish massage session help to release the tension felt in the back, shoulders, arms and legs. They also help to reduce the “knots” or “kinks” one might feel when stressed, or simply spending too much time in the same positions on a daily basis as people are ought to do when working in the office at their computer, or standing at any job.

Essential oils are also often used as part of an aromatherapy treatment partnered with the massage therapy in order to increase the feeling of relaxation and escape when scheduling a spa appointment.

Regardless of the type of massage therapy you are interested in receiving, skilled and experienced massage therapists at Urban Day Spa are ready to provide you with that special getaway from the daily routine you need to start the next day invigorated and refreshed!
