A Swedish full body massage in Rapid City typically includes passive and active joint movements. The stretching and bending of the joints are done by a Massage Therapist. It involves long gliding strokes.

What is the difference between a Swedish Massage and a regular massage?

Deep Tissue Massage near me builds on Swedish techniques employing many of its basic strokes but applying more pressure.  However, Swedish style massages are typically performed with the hands and fingertips, deep tissue massage also employs elbows and forearms to reach deep layers of muscle tissue.

What are the benefits of Swedish Massages?

The main thing to remember when preparing for Swedish Massages is to relax. Another thing that will help before your massage is not to have a large meal because you’ll be laying on your stomach and you don’t want that added pressure. You should eat an hour before your appointment to give your food time to digest.

What can I expect from a Swedish Massage?

Does Swedish massage include 👣 feet?

Swedish massage therapy rapid city

The Swedish massages from Graceful Touch do not automatically include the feet but rather we customize our approach to this massage therapy package so that it includes those areas that the client 😍 prefers that we focus upon.

FEET: Some clients have very ticklish feet and would prefer not having focus here.
BUTT: Typically this area is not targeted during a Swedish massage but very much is with permission within a Muscle Therapy massage.
HANDS: Again, it is at the clients discretion. Due to issues with arthritus (and the like) some clients prefer to skip the hands others wouldn’t miss them for the world and so we don’t.
FACIAL: Upon request we will include a facial within our Swediah massage therapy sessions.
SCALP: A scalp massage within a Swedish treatment really helps the entire process to be an amazing experience unless one prefers that we not include it.

One thing should be clear about Graceful Touch massage therapy and that is that it is a completely customizable process.

What is the most 😊 relaxing massage?

When relaxation is at the top of the list we at Graceful Touch would suggest that it is time for a Swedish massage. 💃 That’s why we call this our “chill” massage.

Ask us how the Essential Oil raindrop treatment compares to Swedish when it comes to relaxation. While the raindrop treatment isn’t exactly a massage one of the many benefits of the process is indeed found within the thoughts of relaxation.

What is the most 😌 gentle massage?

Swedish Massage: 6 Secrets You Need To Know About Rapid City Swedish Massage 9

Since the most relaxing type of massage is Swedish shouldn’t it follow that it is also the most gentle type of massage? Not exactly. For the best in a gentle massage you would be speaking about 🌠 Lymph massage which we at Graceful Touch massage therapy also provide services within. Contact us for details.

Lymph masfssage is designed to increase the immune system by unlocking the lymphatic vessels and allowing proper flow of lymph within the body. We offer the basic level type service under this modality but have recommendations on where to find more advanced services.

Guy is a dedicated vegan, who prefers natural remedies to treat root causes of physiological problems, instead of turning to medication to merely treat symptoms. When he learned in December 2017 he was suffering from high blood pressure (hypertension), he turned to massage as a potential answer for his problem. Rather than engage massage as a client, Guy chose to become a massage practitioner and enrolled in the Black Hills School of Massage in Hermosa, SD. He is now licensed to provide Swedish, Deep Tissue and Trigger Point massage among other modalities. He, and his wife Irene who is also a massage practitioner, have joined forces with the Fountain of Youth Waterstore in Rapid City where they provide clients with comforting relief from body aches and pains. Be sure to ask Guy what happened with his blood pressure when you see him for your initial treatment session.
