In Odnova Massage Therapy Swedish massage is a basic treatment, the purpose of which is to improve diseases by using specific massage techniques: stroking, rubbing, squeezing, kneading, hitting, shaking, vibrating or passive movements. The massage is of course done manually. Through the use of manual procedures, it affects the muscles, ligaments, skin and subcutaneous tissues. It is possible to perform a full or partial massage.
When performing Swedish massage, I use a number of measures such as oils, olives, creams, ointments, etc. Swedish massage firstly stimulates the nervous system, influences the cerebral cortex and, consequently, not directly, but also other systems of our body.
For example, when it comes to the positive influence of Swedish Massage on our outer skin – the skin, it removes dead epidermis, promotes breathing and skin nourishment, and significantly improves the excretory functions of the sebaceous and sweat glands. It also contributes to faster blood circulation in the skin vessels. Swedish massage firms the skin, has a positive effect on its elasticity and relaxes it.
By undergoing Swedish massage treatments, I reduce the risk of injury due to its beneficial effect on the muscular system. It does so by delivering more oxygen and nutrients to the muscles. At the same time, the process of eliminating metabolic products from the body is also improved.

One treatment is, in most cases, insufficient because the source of the pain is in the deeper layers of the tissue. Therefore, a series of treatments is recommended to achieve the best results. Usually, the first few massages should take place every few days, and then you can increase the time intervals between sessions.
If you are interested in a real solution to a problem, and not just its temporary "healing", a series of massage sessions is the best solution for you:
3 sessions - 10% off if paid in advance
5 sessions - 15% off if paid in advance
Each massage is preceded by a consultation, during which you will be asked about your expectations: whether this is stress and anxiety reduction, from tight or painful muscles, an improvement on a recent injury, or simply relaxation. You will also be asked about any temporary or chronic health conditions, as this will help establish the areas that need to be concentrated on or avoided. All this is important so that the right type of massage is tailored to your treatment.
Depending on the massage, you will have the option to either lie on a table or sit in a chair for your massage.
Most massage techniques involve lying on a cushioned table as well pillows to support different areas of your body, If you choose a table massage, you will be left in the treatment room, so that you can undress to your level of comfort and get snug underneath the towel. You may also stay fully clothed if you prefer to. During the massage, the areas which are not being worked on in the given moment will be covered with a blanket to keep you comfortable and warm.
If you choose a chair massage, you won't need to remove your clothing.
During all types of massage, you will be asked if the pressure is right. Harder pressure is mostly applied in deep tissue massage as muscles tend to be extremely tense. Please feel free to communicate if at any point the pressure is too hard or too light, as every person is different.
Massages are carried out using aromatherapy oils or lotions to moisturise the skin. If you are allergic to any common ingredients of body oils or lotions, please advise beforehand.
A typical massage lasts about an hour, although sessions can range from 60 to 90 minutes.
After a massage, you will be left in the treatment room alone to relax for a few minutes and then get dressed. After the treatment, most people feel extremely relaxed and free from long-term aches, there is also a feeling of increased energy which may last for days afterward. If you have gone for a deep tissue massage, you may feel slightly tender to start with, but after your muscles get used to the relaxed state, you should feel much better.
Most people like to close their eyes and relax, but if you prefer to chat or have any questions to ask then feel free to ask them. It’s all about your relaxation and you should do whatever makes you feel most comfortable.
