Swedish Massage is the most predominant example of traditional European massage and the most commonly used technique in the United States, especially in the spa industry as it is so effective in promoting release and relaxation. It was developed by Swedish-born Per Hendrik Ling in the 1830’s and employs a system of long gliding strokes, kneading, vibration, percussion, and friction on the more superficial layers of muscles and their attachments. With emphasis on increasing blood and lymph circulation to enhance systemic cleansing, strokes will move generally toward the heart. Lubricants are first warmed, which facilitates friction-free gliding and kneading of tissue, thereby stimulating metabolbism, circulation, and relaxation. Its active and passive movements of the joints promote general rejuvination, increased range-of-motion and senovial fluid production (joint lubrication), and relief of muscle tension. Swedish Massage is most often administered as a full-body technique, covering all major superficial muscle groups with moderate to minimal draping
(at the client’s discression) allowing for full, uninterrupted strokes from neck-to-toe and back again.
