Preparing for Your Massage Visit

Preparing for your self-care visit at Massage Strong is simple! You don’t need to bring anything special with you, and you only need to show up 5 minutes before your appointment time to fill out a few documents. At the time of your appointment, your professional Swedish massage therapist will lead you to your room and you’ll discuss if there are any areas of discomfort, injuries, or specific muscle tension. It’s important for your massage specialist to understand your areas of pain so that they can take extra care and spend more time focusing on the areas of the most tension.

Your massage specialist will then leave while you undress to your comfort level. While it’s most common to undress to your underwear, you can leave your clothes on should you feel more comfortable. During the massage, you will be covered in a sheet and given private space to dress and undress. 

Our team of professional Swedish massage specialists in Lexington & Nicholasville understands that many first-timers can feel anxious or nervous about the massage experience. That’s why we work extra hard to create an environment that is not only relaxing but also comfortable for each client that walks in. Our specialists are professional, hospitable, and always available to answer any questions you may have.   

5 Therapeutic Benefits of Swedish Massage

As one of the most well-known and widely practiced therapeutic massages, the Swedish massage therapy offers great therapeutic benefits to individuals of all ages. These therapeutic benefits are best noticed when you receive a Swedish massage once a week, or twice a month, depending on your level of muscle tension. Some of these benefits include:

Improved Blood Circulation

Pain Management

Muscle Injury Rehabilitation

Improved Flexibility

Lowered Stress Levels

Swedish Massage Therapy in Lexington & Nicholasville
  • Improved Blood Circulation – The long, stroking motions used in a professional Swedish massage help to direct the blood flow towards the heart and increase blood flow. This increase in blood flow helps your muscles to receive more oxygen and nutrients which helps to relieve muscle tension and pain. It also helps to remove toxins from your body which helps you to feel healthier as well.
  • Pain Management – Massage therapy is considered to be a natural way of relieving pain, especially for individuals with medical conditions such as osteoarthritis and sciatica. The Swedish massage therapist can target specific areas of muscle tension and pain in your body to improve blood circulation and reduce tension, all helping to relieve pain.
  • Muscle Injury Rehabilitation – Individuals who have experienced muscle injuries can benefit from Swedish massage therapy to help restore the muscles that have been torn or bruised. Unlike deep tissue massage therapy, Swedish massage therapy is more gentle on the muscles and works to slowly work out the muscle kinks in a pain-free way.
  • Improved Flexibility – Receiving consistent Swedish massage therapy is a great way to improve your flexibility and range of motion! By relaxing the muscles, they are better able to extend and adjust, and help prevent injuries while you exercise or play sports.
  • Lowered Stress Levels – Swedish massage therapy gives you the opportunity to lay down and focus on yourself. Relaxing the muscles is a great way to relax your mind and relieve stress. After a Swedish massage, your muscles and your mind will feel relaxed and ready to perform as you need them to each day.

Swedish Massage vs. Deep Tissue: What’s the Difference?

Two of the most common types of massage therapy – Swedish massage and deep tissue massage – are great options for relieving muscle tension. So which one is the best option for you? What does a full body Swedish massage therapy include? Swedish massages are perhaps the most common type of massage that people think of when they think about massage therapy.

Professional Swedish Massage in Lexington & Nicholasville

This type of massage is used to promote relaxation and relieve areas of muscle tension. This “classic massage” is gentler than a deep tissue massage, as it uses long, soft kneading strokes to work through areas of muscle tension. Individuals who experience pain and tension in the lower back, neck, and shoulders can benefit from the gentle and soothing technique of a Swedish massage. The massage does work through the entire body, but professional Swedish massage specialists can focus on more specific areas of tension if you let them know beforehand. After a Swedish massage, you’ll feel relaxed, your nerve endings will be stimulated, and you’ll experience increased blood flow and lymph drainage. Deep tissue massages are similar to Swedish massages but use more pressure to relieve muscle tension. This type of massage therapy is more common for athletes, people with injuries, and people with chronic pain conditions. The deep strokes of the massage aim to reach and stretch the deep tissue and helps to increase blood circulation to the soft tissue and reduce inflammation. Although a deep tissue massage can begin by warming up all areas of the body, it spends more time focusing on specific areas of pain and tension.
