What is Swedish Massage?
Swedish massage is the name of the type of massage that was developed in Sweden in the mid 19th century by Per Henrik Ling. It has become the most commonly offered and best-known type of massage available in the UK. The idea behind Swedish Massage is to create greater blood flow to the muscles and soft tissues by using a combination of long strokes, kneading motions, friction, stretching and tapping. It is usually offered as a full body treatment.
