At House of Lore in Athens, GA, our massage therapy is a cornerstone of wellness and relaxation. Our 60 or 90-minute customizable, Swedish massage is a gentle yet effective treatment, perfect for those new to massage or looking for a session that focuses on relaxation and tension relief. Using a series of long, flowing strokes, kneading, and circular movements, our skilled therapists target the uppermost layers of muscles to promote relaxation and improve circulation. This type of massage is excellent for treating minor muscular discomfort, reducing stress, and promoting overall well-being.
The beauty of a Swedish massage is that the benefits can be felt almost immediately, with a profound sense of relaxation during and after the session. While the immediate soothing effects are often short-lived, the stress-reducing and circulation-boosting benefits can have lasting effects for days to come. To extend the tranquility and physical benefits, we recommend regular massages. Take a step towards a calmer, more centered self by booking your Swedish massage appointment at House of Lore today, and let us help you unwind in an oasis of serenity.
A good candidate for a Swedish Massage is someone looking to alleviate everyday stress, manage minor muscle tension, and enhance their overall well-being. It is particularly beneficial for those who are new to massage therapy, as it employs a gentler technique compared to deep tissue massages. Individuals seeking relaxation, improved circulation, and a peaceful retreat from the fast pace of life will find Swedish massage an ideal choice. It's also suitable for people with a lower pain threshold or who prefer a less intense massage experience.
You will feel more relaxed immediately during and after the massage, with some benefits like improved circulation and muscle tension relief lasting for several days.
While the feeling of relaxation may be temporary, the health benefits can last for several days, and with regular sessions, you can maintain these benefits over time.
There is no downtime required after a Swedish massage, and side effects are rare. Some may experience temporary soreness if they have tight muscles or knots.
Before your massage, it's best to be hydrated and avoid eating a heavy meal. Afterward, drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins released during the session.
During your Swedish massage at House of Lore, expect a tranquil environment where our therapists will use a blend of strokes and movements to relax your body, ease muscle tension, and promote a sense of well-being.
