Proudly Serving Hobart, TAS
The city of Hobart first became a city on August 21, 1842, and since early 1881 it has been renamed Hobart.
Hobart is a gateway to Antarctica, with geographical proximity to the eastern Antarctic and the Southern Ocean. Because of its unique personality and location, the town is a mecca for tourism in Tasmania. Hobart is full of history, fantastic food, and creative locals.
The Cadbury factory, as well as sightseeing tours of southern Tasmania, such as Port Arthur, the Tasman Peninsula, the Tahune Forest promenade, the Kaka Creek, the Huon Valley, and the hike to South Cape Bay, are all popular local attractions.
As Australia’s second oldest capital after Sydney, Hobart offers historic sites with a history of tumultuous past. Hobart has historically been the cheapest capital rental market, but the steady growth has pushed prices beyond Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and even Melbourne.
Hadley’s East Hotel, located on Murray Street, is Australia’s oldest permanent Hotel. Hobart also hosts the famous Institute of International Symphony Orchestra of the University of Tasmania (AISOI), which brings young, pre-professional musicians to the city.
Most of the City’s events, such as Tasmania’s Taste and Hobart’s Summer Festival, are financed by the Tasmania Government as a joint venture with the Hobart City Council.

How Does Swedish Massage Differ From Our Other Services?
If you’ve received a massage in the past, there’s a high chance it may have been a Swedish massage. As one of the most popular massages provided by Australian masseuses, this might be the perfect massage form for you.
What Is a Swedish Massage?
Unlike a deep tissue massage, a Swedish massage uses long strokes and kneading to relax the recipient and provide adequate pressure. While a Swedish massage does provide pressure to the body, it’s not considered a hard massage technique. This form of massage is a gentle option for people who want a traditional massage that doesn’t stress the body.
You may be wondering: why is it called a Swedish massage? The name of this form of massage is actually related to the person who first invented it. A Swedish fencer who injured himself found that he was able to cure the pain via the techniques currently used in a Swedish massage – hence, the name. The primary aim of a Swedish massage involves relieving muscle tension. If you’re someone who is overly tense, this might be a type of massage that is suitable for you.
What Are the Benefits?
There are numerous benefits associated with Swedish massages. The primary benefit is relaxation. Because this form of massage therapy methodically reduces muscle tension, it’s a very relaxing form of massage. Relaxing can have many benefits for your health. If you currently experience large amounts of stress, the relaxing effect of this massage can go a long way in helping you relieve tension in your upper body.
While this isn’t technically a ‘sports massage,’ a Swedish massage is also often used by athletes before and after athletic competitions. Using slow kneading can help relax the muscles and prepare athletes for physical activity. Also, the same type of massage can help relieve tension after an athletic event or activity.
If you’re someone who works in an office environment, your muscles may naturally tighten throughout the day. Using a Swedish massage to help relieve tension can assist in preventing office-related stress. If you want to perform at the optimum level, it’s critical to ensure that stress doesn’t overtake your life. For anyone looking for a relaxing, gentle massage that can reduce pain and tension, Swedish massage provides a range of benefits.
