SWEDISH MASSAGE

 Swedish Massage

WHAT IS IT?

The most common and well-known type of massage, Swedish Massage typically focuses on relaxing or stimulating the body’s muscles by the use of a variety of strokes, such as effleurage, kneading, friction, stretching, and tapping. Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology, as opposed to energy work on "meridians" or sen lines in Asian massage systems. Both Swedish massage and physical therapy were pioneered by a Swedish physiologist, Per Henrik Ling (1776-1839) at the University of Stockholm.
