As with all treatments at Fourward Health, we offer bespoke, tailored Massages to ensure that your unique needs are met in every treatment. However, we may also recommend other or additional treatments to ensure the best outcome for you. Please give us a call if you are unsure as to what treatment would be best for you or as a gift.

Does a Swedish Massage hurt?

As a Swedish Massage will help relieve muscle aches, pains and tenderness, you may experience some discomfort during the Massage, as we are releasing some tension in the body, but it should never be painful. At any time, you can ask your Fourward Health Massage therapist to use light, medium or firm pressure.

What should I wear?

During a Swedish Massage, your Fourward Health Massage therapist will ask you to undress for your Massage whilst they wait outside. We ask that you keep your underwear on and to drape one of our soft, white towels over yourself to ensure your modesty and privacy We may move the towel from time to time during the Massage as we move around the body, however we will always respect your privacy.
