When you come for a Swedish massage treatment at Therapy House, your therapist will take some time to talk to you to find out about your general health and wellbeing.

You will be given some privacy to get undressed before you lay face-down on a massage couch. Although some people are happy to be naked underneath a sheet or towel, knowing that their therapist will only undercover the body part they are working on at each stage of the massage, you are welcome to keep your underwear on if that feels more comfortable.

Your therapist will then apply a lotion to your skin and use a range of massage techniques, from long, sweeping strokes to small circular motions or kneading to warm up your muscle tissues, break up tissue adhesions and release tension.
