Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is the most commonly offered and best known type of massage.

Swedish massage was developed by a Swedish physiologist, Henri Peter Ling at the University of Stockholm in 1812.
It is the manipulation of soft tissue for therapeutic purposes.
Swedish massage is available as a full body massage, as a back massage, or as a back neck and shoulder massage.

It uses a firm but gentle pressure to improve the circulation, ease muscle aches and tension, improve flexibility and create relaxatio

Swedish massage is the foundation for other types of Western massage, including sports, deep tissue and aromatherapy.

The therapist generally uses massage oil, talc, or cream to facilitate making long, smooth strokes over the body.

Swedish massage is done with the person covered by towels, a technique called “draping”.

One part of the body uncovered, massaged, and then covered up before moving on to another part of the body.
