Brighton & Hove
With Swedish Massage or Therapeutic Massage therapy, gentler pressure is applied as skin and muscles are gently stroked, kneaded, rubbed, tapped, and vibrated. Usually, the whole body is treated.
Swedish massage promotes a deep state of mental relaxation, eases muscular tensions and results in an overall feeling of well-being. The gentle strokes and wonderful smells of soothing essential oils used during the treatment will melt away tensions and stress, and allow you to just let go... You will leave feeling refreshed, centred and revitalised.

Stress, anxiety & depression management
The massage treatments nourish and revitalise the entire being and will leave you feeling deeply relaxed, both physically as well as mental-emotionally. Deep rooted mental-emotional imbalances such as stress, anxiety or depression and the like often cause physical tensions, aches and pains or even illness in the body. Whilst massage therapy treats the physical symptoms, a wonderful 'side effect' is a sense of deep mental-emotional relaxation and calm. As the physical body moves into a pain-free state of relaxation the mind follows, becomes still, more positive and pro-active. Yvi's treatments truly promote a sense of inner calm and harmony.
Swedish Massage - What to expect?
Usually, the entire body is treated, including back, neck and shoulders, legs/feet, arms/hands, stomach, head and face. Lighter pressure is applied, and optional, wonderfully scented essential oils are used which enhance mental and physical relaxation and well-being. A full body treatment is recommended as all muscles work together as a whole, and often tension or pain in certain muscles or joints of the body are linked to muscle groups in another part of the body. However, specific problem areas can be targeted as needed. For a full-body treatment, a 75-90 minute treatment is recommended.
All therapies are for women only.
