One of the top three in terms of most requested massage style, our classic massage is just great for when you are looking for a total wind-down from hectic London life, as more than anything else it is relaxing. It is also a brilliant way to get introduced into the wonderful world of massage treatments.
Our classic massage is based on the ubiquitous Swedish massage and uses gentle to medium pressure strokes to relax and revive your muscles, release tension and leave you feeling invigorated and relaxed.
Swedish massage is one of the most popular treatment styles offered all over Europe. In terms of pressure, Swedish massage sits at the light to medium end of the pressure spectrum.
If you have never had a massage before or you feel like an overall relaxing session then our classic massage is one of the best choices.
A classic massage normally begins with softer strokes, known as effleurage, which are designed to be a light and comforting introduction to your masseuse’s touch and help prepare your body for the next stage of the massage, for each muscle group area. Effleurage also provides the opportunity for your therapist to spread the oil over each muscle group area in a calming and relaxing style.
Effleurage is followed by a variety of medium pressure techniques, used to relieve deeper tension. Some of the most popular such medium pressure massage techniques include kneading and palm-pressure.
Kneading is, as the name suggests, similar to the process applied to dough when making bread. The focus is on more fleshy areas of the body such as above the muscles on the sides of the spine, the buttocks and the thighs.
Palm-pressure is an excellent technique allowing the full body weight of the masseur to be applied in a gentle manner through the hands. The palms are placed flat on your body and then the massage therapist gently leans forward applying her body weight through her palms into your back or limbs.
