Swedish massage is the most common type of massage. It is named after Per Henrik Ling (1776-1839) of Smaaland, Sweden, a physiologist and fencing master. In the early 19th century he developed a system called “Medical Gymnastics” which included movements performed by a therapist. These became the known as “Swedish movements” in Europe and “the Swedish Movement Cure” when they came to the U.S. in 1858. Today it is simply known as Swedish massage.
It combines various hand techniques including gliding (effleurage), kneading, stretching , tapping and friction to break up muscle knots. It can be slow and gentle, or vigorous and bracing. Usually includes some deeper work on areas of specific muscle tension. If the pressure is too light or too firm, you should ask the therapist to adjust it.
Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology. It is performed by a trained and licensed therapist who lubricates the skin with special oil and usually takes 50 to 60 minutes to do the whole body.
