Swedish Massage

What is it ?

The Swedish massage, also known as "Classic massage", is an oil massage whose roots can't be more international! Per Henrik Ling, the only Swedish element, teamed up with Ming, Chinese Massage Techniques (known as Tui Na) expert, to develop massage techniques based on the study of gymnastic movements. Dutch practitioner Johan Georg Mezger borrowed them to create the "Swedish massage" and gave French names to the 5 basic strokes on top most layers of muscles: effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration (shaking). It is also combined with joint movements.



The Swedish massage is known to reduce join stiffness, muscle tension, pain, and relieve from anxiety and stress. It promotes relaxation and leaves you with a feeling of well-being and body awareness.
