The type of massage most people think of is the traditional western, or Swedish, massage. The massage session will usually last about 45 minutes, which is considered one clinical hour. But Swedish massage is not the only type of massage; depending on which type is being used, a massage session can last anywhere from 15 minutes to two hours.
For example a chair massage or a massage for a sports injury or pre-game warm-up may last just 15 minutes, while a session using a polarity or cranial-sacral technique may last up to two hours. Many Eastern style massage techniques, such as Shiatsu or Thai massage, will usually be between 45 and 90 minutes.
Most massage therapists will provide you with a price list of their services, including the techniques used and the time allotted.
