In today's life, sometimes giving your body a rest, a release of tension that relaxes your mind, can become not only enjoyable, but necessary. Although it sounds selfish, we really need a recharge of energy to face your next challenges with our muscles relaxed and our mind ready for the following challenges.
There are many ways to achieve a significant release of tension in your muscles and refresh your mind. A good exercise routine, an afternoon of talking with your loved ones, reading a book on a topic you are passionate about, or similar actions can be effective. But, we can tell you about a more effective way ;)
Through all our years indulging our clients, in Artepil we have become experts in performing all kinds of massages in Puerto Vallarta and we have been confirmed that there is no better way to relax the body.
Nuestros tipos de masaje en Puerto Vallarta
We have already told you about the benefits that professional massages can mean for you, as well as the dangers of performing a massage with a non-professional. And there is no more professional massage service in Puerto Vallarta than Artepil, where pampering you is our art.
Another information that you should take into account is that not all professional massages are the same or have the same functions, so you should identify the type of massage that best suits you according to their properties and your physical condition.
First, it is important to say that there are two main types of massages: therapeutic massages and relaxing massages, so it is important to distinguish between these two great families to define the type of massage you need. In Artepil we specialize in both types of massages, with certified professionals to perform this service and natural products to guarantee the care of the skin area where the massage is going to be performed.
Among the types of massages in our catalog you can find 13 techniques; all of them designed to satisfy a specific need of your body.
- Lymphatic Drainage
- Hot stones
- Tired legs
- Revitalizing Foot
- Deep Tissue
- Wine therapy
We will soon be outlining the characteristics of each massage, but in this article, our main mission is to tell you about how Swedish massage is done and the benefits it brings to you.
The benefits of Swedish massage in Artepil
Massages have been present in different cultures throughout the history of our humanity and each civilization has used them with their particularities and techniques according to the environment that surrounded them.
At the beginning of the 19th century, a Swedish physiologist named Per Henrik Ling developed a system of physiotherapy called “Medical Gymnastics”, which brings together knowledge and techniques from ancient civilizations that Ling took as his inspiration. Over time these techniques evolved into what we know today as Swedish massage.
Swedish massage is the basis of almost all massage techniques used in the Western Hemisphere. It consists of light, low-pressure movements on the muscles that lead to deep relaxation of the body and mind. It may also include gentle movement of the joints. Swedish massage has four common forms that can vary very little depending on the therapist.
- Effleurage: Relaxing soft tissue
- Petrissage: Knead the muscles.
- Friction: Deep circular movements.
- Tapotement: Short touches with the edge of the hand, the cupped hand or with the fingers.
Thanks to the fact that not too much pressure is applied to your muscles, if you have an injury the Swedish massage is perfect to relax you without the risk of suffering pain in your injury.
Among the greatest benefits of Swedish massage are the elimination of toxins, promoting blood circulation and finding the natural balance in the body. And there are more!
- Acceleration of the lymphatic drainage effect
- Better looking skin
- Supports the digestive system
- Has a positive effect on your nervous system by relaxing your mind
- Firmer and more elastic muscle tissue

From there, you will go to the massage cabin, where you will be able to settle on the stretcher before the therapist enters and will not enter until you are in position. Your privacy is very important to us.
The cabin where you are about to receive your Swedish massage is designed to be a container of relaxation for all your senses. Relaxing music, pleasant smells and a pleasant design to the sight, will be putting your body and mind in a receptive state to what comes next.
For our therapists, a constant communication with you is necessary to know the service you need and how you are feeling with the movements that the Swedish massage requires, if you feel the appropriate muscle pressure, if the smell of oil that is used to relax your body is to your liking... We want that every detail to be to your liking and you have an incredible experience.
The duration of the Swedish massage can vary between 50 and 90 minutes, depending on the service you have chosen. But during the whole service we make sure that you manage to relax and unwind your muscles to receive all the benefits of the Swedish massage.
