SWEDISH MASSAGE

Traditional Swedish massage was introduced by Swedish physiologist, Henri Peter Ling, in Stockholm, Sweden in 1812. This massage technique is characterized by its firm, yet calming pressure that improves blood circulation, eases muscle tension, and improves flexibility.

Swedish Massage consists of five basic massage techniques which include stretching, gliding, kneading, hacking and friction. All strokes are applied towards the heart in order to encourage blood circulation and the disposal of bodily waste. The amount of pressure applied during these techniques depends on the patient’s body state and comfort level. The application of techniques will differ from person to person and the depth of the pressure ranges from light to medium, but firm. Oils or lotions are used to achieve smooth, long, and deep strokes, and to reduce friction.

Relaxation massage has been shown to help reduce blood pressure by as much as 20 points. Massage improves the blood circulation in several ways without putting additional strain on the heart. It helps the flow of blood through the veins and also stimulates the nerves which control the blood vessels.
