Swedish Massage

Massage is an ancient therapeutic treatment. Countless civilizations throughout history have recognized the healing power of human touch, especially in Eastern cultures (Ancient Rome, Greece, China and Egypt). Swedish Massage gets it name from Per Henrik Ling, a Swede who, in the 1800s looked at Eastern and Western massage traditions and developed his own scientific system of massage movements which forms the basis of many massage techniques today. This Swedish Massage system includes long smooth strokes (effleurage), kneading (petrissage) and friction and tapping (tapotement) all of which work to relax tired and aching muscles whilst encouraging the flow of blood and lymph and enhancing skin tone.
