Swedish Massage therapy is the most well known massage therapy in the Western world and the most common massage treatment available in spas and massage outlets by far. Here at Blackpool Massage Services & Boutique Blackpool Day Spa we regard Swedish Massage as the go-to massage therapy, where general good health and relaxation of the entire body is the primary desire. Swedish Massage has been shown to significantly reduce the levels of cortisol, the stress hormone in the body. There are many added health benefits of the general muscle massage work of Swedish Massage and stimulation of the circulation system has been shown to increase white blood cells. Swedish Massage treatments can boost the immune system and promote better health.
The Swedish Massage therapy technique is characterised by long flowing hand movements, rubbing of muscles and encouraging return blood flow in the direction of the heart. Such gentle or firmer massage movements are very effective in reducing tension and aiding relaxation. However, Swedish Massage therapy is also very effective at increasing blood oxygen levels and thereby decreasing muscle toxins. This in turn leads to improved flexibility and faster recovery times for worked muscles.
Here at Blackpool Massage Services & Boutique Blackpool Day Spa we can customise our Swedish Massage therapy treatments to the personal needs of our customers. That's because the ideal Swedish Massage treatment will vary depending on individual needs and desires. Tired or sore muscles due to work or sports require extra deep tissue massage therapy to realign and rejuvenate muscles. The therapists at Blackpool Massage Services & Boutique Day Spa are trained in specific Swedish Massage and stretching techniques aimed at pain relief and to stimulate the faster healing of muscles and increase flexibility. This can be achieved by the therapist applying firmer pressure to problem areas using circular hand, palm and kneading massage movements to get deeper muscle penetration for better therapeutic health effects.
Firm pressure or Deep Tissue Massage techniques are very beneficial for those suffering from chronic muscle tension. A one hour deep tissue Swedish Massage treatment has also been shown to reduce blood pressure, heart rate and improve mood and relaxation with the release of feel good hormones oxytocin and serotonin. Deep tissue Swedish Massage is a valuable addition to weight control programmes, general fitness and high intensity body building workouts in aiding recovery.
Here at Blackpool Massage Services & Blackpool Spa our Aromatherapy Massage therapy is a more gentle form of Swedish Massage, with more focus on delivering a high state of relaxation, improved mood and sense of well being. Massage techniques are flowing and gentle, with more mild muscle massage and stimulation. The most common purpose of Aromatherapy Massage therapy is to calm, relax and achieve a state of peace and well being.

The natural therapeutic properties of essential oils, when combined with the many positive health benefits and healing powers of massage therapy are immense and widely excepted to benefit the circulatory, lymphatic, immune and muscular systems.

Called 'Nuat Phaen Boran' in Thailand and meaning 'Ancient Traditional Massage'. Thai Traditional Massage therapy has evolved from the time of Buddha and is heavily based on both Indian and Chinese medicine healing traditions, with elements of Yoga and Reflexology. At Blackpool Massage Services & Boutique Blackpool Day Spa our Thai Oil Massage is a special combination of both traditional Thai massage and Swedish massage, exploiting the most beneficial aspects from each therapy. One scientific study found Thai massage to be as effective as chemical pain relief for joint pain due to osteoarthritis. Thai massage has also been proven very effective in treating fatigue, improving flexibility and providing pain relief. Thai massage incorporates a number of stretching movements designed to increase flexibility, joint movements, blood circulation and lymph drainage.
Traditional Thai massage is performed on a mat on the floor and does not require massage oils. Our Thai Oil Massage therapy is performed on a massage bed, affording a much higher level of relaxation to be achieved and massage oil or essential oils are used to include the many therapeutic benefits of Swedish Massage. However, elements of traditional Thai massage, such as Yoga, Reflexology and Stretching techniques are very present throughout the treatment.
Our Thai Oil Massage treatment at Blackpool Massage Services & Blackpool Spa is a deep muscle, full body, firm pressure and deep rhythmic movements’ massage that starts from the feet up. The massage follows the concept of Chinese medicine and the twelve meridian energy pathways throughout the body to specific organs. The treatment aims to clear congestion of these pathways and restore the natural flow of Chi or vital energy to maintain equilibrium in the body's organs and boost the body's immune system, to enable the body to heal itself, ensuring good health and to prevent disease.
Our feet are seldom shown the respect they deserve for the amazing amount of hard work they do for us each day. Ancient Egypt and China believed that foot massage could ensure or restore good health. Today, foot reflexology is becoming an increasingly popular alternative health therapy. In the UK foot reflexology is one of the most popular massage therapies. Foot massage or reflexology is a mix of art and science based on the belief that the practice of massaging, stimulating and applying pressure to points and reflexes within the feet can help and encourage the self healing process of ailments in other areas of the body, as different points of the foot correspond to organs and other body systems. This is believed to be achieved as the therapist stimulates zones on the feet, energy channels that exist throughout the body are reactivated that restore good health and organ functions.
Come and enjoy a Foot Massage at Blackpool Massage Services & Blackpool Spa and your soon understand that they are also incredibly relaxing too. Reflexology is an ancient traditional Chinese health remedy practiced for centuries and designed to clear energy pathways and congestion of the nervous system throughout the body, that if untreated can lead to pain and sickness.

While the modern day interpretation of this old healing technique often seems to be lost in translation. Tantra Tantric massage therapy is an ancient healing massage originating from India and developed many centuries ago. It was and is an art form formulated to release the body’s natural energies and tensions to heal the effects of physical and emotional trauma.
A Tantra Tantric Massage is a sensual full body massage. It is based on the belief that sensual massage therapy can induce physical pleasing through the release of endorphins and other feel-good hormones, creating such a sense of well-being that leads to inner peace and healthier individuals. A Tantra Tantric Massage at Blackpool Massage Services & Boutique Blackpool Day Spa is designed to arouse deep sensual feelings and a very pleasurable massage experience achieved through skilful touch, gentle massage and aromatherapy.
The ultimate aim of a Tantra Tantric Massage therapy is to encourage emotional, physical, spiritual awakening and to teach us to love and except ourselves fully. It is a lesson in the surrender of our constant agenda driven behavior and our desire to control, so as to allow our body to fully receive the vital nourishment of the loving, healing touch from another, that we all so very much crave and need.
At Blackpool Massage Services & Boutique Day Spa our Tantra Tantric Sensual Massage treatment is a Sensual Massage Only, Nonsexual therapy for both Men & Women (some say better then sex)
