"I’m very please with my massage. Alexis was very professional at all times, even her quality of work showed it. I was very comfortable with her from the moment she introduced herself to me. Her knowledge of how to apply the perfect massage that caters to you was excellent. I’m glad to finally find a therapist who knows what exactly you want just by telling her a few things. I definitely will be going back to her. Thanks Alexis for a wonderful massage."

"I have been very impressed with how Dr. Gampolo runs his practice! Prices are very reasonable and Dr. Gampolo was awesome! During my initial visit with him, he examined my posture (now I’m constantly trying to pull my shoulders back) and my spine. He also spent time getting to know my history, my aches/complaints, and what I wanted out of future visits. I randomly told him about some non-related back pain while we were talking, not expecting any suggestions. Well, he shows me a chart that explains how countless issues with your body actually relate to your spine! (And he wasn’t trying to “sell” me on getting adjustments like other chiropractors have done in the past!) I felt comfortable talking with Dr. Gampolo! I am happy I found my new favorite chiropractor who is so passionate about helping people."

"I began working with Suzy West in April of 2014. Her holistic approach in using acupuncture is what drew me to work with Suzy. Over the years, we have worked on many chronic health issues that did not respond to "traditional" treatment - stress headaches, digestive issues, and muscle issues are a few. Suzy is totally focused on her patient, carefully listens to her history, and is fully engaged in the healing. She poses thoughtful questions to clarify all facets of the problem. Working with Suzy has impacted my life and health in a positive way. I have recommended consultations with Suzy to several people for a variety of ailments and would encourage anyone considering acupuncture to schedule an appointment with her. Gayle Young-Monroe"

"She was very professional. She took the time to ask about my health history and what I wanted out of the visit. It is the perfect combination because her office had a spa-type ambience and her hands artfully find the areas that need to be worked on. She made sure that I was comfortable at all times during the massage, adjusting the pressure and techniques to my needs. She was very compassionate. Really knows what she's doing and does it with a lot of passion. I live in constant pain so when I got up from the massage table the sense of relief was so amazing I made my next appointment. Highly recommend her."

"I have gone to be treated by Colleen first in Massage, then in Structural Therapeutic Integration. While I am a jumpy, private person in regards to being touched, Colleen's professional calming presence allowed me to relax into the massage and receive a much needed muscle treatment. Colleen was sensitive to both my verbal and non-verbal responses and helped me to relax deeper as she eased me into muscle Nirvana. While the idea of being naked was a concern (I did wear big full coverage underwear), Colleen had a way to keep covered what needed to be covered and work on bits and pieces of tight muscles using appropriate pressure as she went. If I wanted something different, she was receptive and worked with my comfort limitations. The massage was excellent and I floated the rest of my Day. The concept of Structual Therapeutic Integration was new to me as probably most people, but from my understanding we were working together to realign, work thru the maladjustments I had been holding in my body, and ease me back into the correct posture and alignment we are meant to have. Different from massage in that there is a longer pressure/push on the tight muscles and a working together of Therapist and Client. Colleen would push slowly down a tight muscle as I gently moved the muscle in different poses to relieve the tightness. I could sense that it was helping my whole body work together and work as it was designed. I arrived with a strange clicking noise in my shoulder and some pain due to injury from an exercise DVD. With Colleen guidance and firm pressures, we were able to ease the tightness of the shoulder as well as other upper body regions. As I rose from the table, I could feel as well as see, a straightening of my spine and overall body. A side benefit was the Gift of being relaxed enough to sleep thru the night since the treatment. I believe the STI is a treatment that gives even after the process. Colleen is personable, giving, and has a healing touch in both the treatment types. Making an apportment was easy and worked into my schedule. The environment of her Office is calming, clean, and welcoming."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What are the different Swedish massage techniques?

There are five main techniques in Swedish massage: effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement and vibration. Within each category there are various movements, all intended to ease muscle tension and pain. Each movement has a specific purpose for loosening, warming, soothing or stimulating your muscles during your massage. Here is a breakdown of each of the five Swedish massage techniques:

  • Effleurage: Sweeping, gliding, smooth long strokes done with the hands or forearms. These strokes can loosen and warm the body and are said to help stimulate blood flow.
  • Friction: These circular or transverse rubbing strokes are also warming and can get deeper into the muscle tissue. They should be avoided on injured or inflamed areas or areas.
  • Petrissage: Lifting, kneading, skin rolling, muscle rolling and wringing. These movements help with circulation, which stimulates cell regeneration, and aid in loosening tense muscles.
  • Tapotement: Tapping, plucking, cupping and pounding. Tapotement movements can help improve blood circulation and cell rejuvenation, and also relax and release tight muscles.  
  • Vibration: Rocking, shaking and trembling movements. These motions can help muscles release.

What is a Swedish style massage?

Swedish massage is proven to lower blood pressure and reduce stress, according to the International Journal of Preventative Medicine, as well as to relieve depression and anxiety and aid in recuperation from chronic illness. Swedish massage is also referred to as classical massage, and — contrary to popular understanding — does not originate from Sweden. There are five main strokes, or movements, that make up a Swedish massage: effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement and vibration. Each technique was created to help soothe, stimulate, soften, and rejuvenate muscles and other soft tissue.

During a Swedish style massage, the client will lie on a massage table in a comfortable position — usually facedown to start. Clients can choose to be clothed or nude; if they are nude, the massage therapist will drape them with a cloth so they are never exposed. A Swedish massage typically lasts from 45 to 120 minutes, depending on client need and pricing agreement. During the massage, the therapist typically employs all of the stroke techniques as a way to ease any tension in the body. Swedish massage is one of the most gentle types of massage and is known for being soothing and relaxing.

Why is it called a Swedish massage?

Everyone loves Swedish massage. It’s soothing and relaxing and, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, is proven to relieve pain. Swedish massage can also relieve symptoms associated with chronic illness, arthritis, depression and other ailments. The term Swedish massage is actually a massive mixup, according to Massage Magazine. The technique would be more aptly named classical massage, which it is often called. What we in the United States refer to as Swedish massage was actually invented by a Dutch physician named Johan Georg Mezger. Mezger systematized and gave French names to the five massage techniques used today in Swedish (or classic) massage: effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement and vibration. The confusion began when the techniques systematized by Mezger were attributed to Per Henrik Ling, the founder of the Swedish Movement System who had practiced his similar techniques in his gymnasium. In many parts of the world, Swedish massage is called classic massage, and most massage therapists will understand either term.

How much does it cost to get a Swedish massage?

Having a Swedish massage can promote relaxation, relieve stress and help you feel great. The national average price range to hire a massage therapist is $70-$90, with prices varying based on length of massage and location. Costs may be higher for a Swedish massage if the client would like services in their home or office, as the massage therapist has to transport their massage table and account for transportation costs. Geographic location can also affect costs, as regions with a lower cost of living and a lower cost to do business will have lower rates than pricey areas such as San Francisco or New York. Here are some examples of average Swedish massage costs:

  • $50 for a 60-minute massage in North Texas.
  • $55 for a 60-minute massage in Central Texas.
  • $60 for a 60-minute massage in New Jersey.
  • $100 for a 60-minute massage in San Francisco Bay Area.

How long is a Swedish massage?

A Swedish massage can range from 45 minutes to 120 minutes or more. A longer massage allows the massage therapist to give you an all-over massage and then circle back to focus on areas in need of extra bodywork. Some massage therapists recommend that your first massage be longer to give the therapist time to learn more about your health and any injuries or pain before providing you with a healing massage. The longer your massage, the more it will cost. Swedish massage is made up of five body strokes designed to relax, heal, improve circulation and maintain health. The techniques are called effleurage, friction, petrissage, tapotement and vibration. During Swedish massage, all parts of the body are addressed, and the client is often unclothed and draped with a cloth. Swedish massage is proven to be beneficial to mental and physical health, and has been shown by the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine to boost the immune system.
