A Swedish massage is one of the most common types of massages you can get. It is a classic massage that helps to energize the body and improve overall health. Swedish massage is good for people who haven’t experienced any massages before. It involves actions like percussion, kneading, vibration, tapping and rolling. These gentle actions are so relaxing that you will not feel pain. Organic massage oil or lotion is used to protect the skin from friction. This is often the massage you will get in five star hotels and spas.

History and Development of Swedish Massage

Spa originated from the Latin phrase 'Salus per Aquam', meaning 'health from water'. Spa is named after the Belgian village in the Ardennes region, Spa (Walloon: Spå), inscribed for its famous mineral springs and its architectural testimony to the rise of European bathing culture in the 18th and 19th centuries. The ancient Romans discovered that hot mineral springs relieved their aches and pains.

 

The Swedish massage is based on the theory of western anatomy and physiology. A Swedish physiologist Pehr Henrik Ling, the father of Swedish massage, developed a chart called “Medical Gymnastics’’ that depicted the strokes and movements that massage therapists should perform on their customers. It was also named “Swedish Movements” and “Swedish Movement Cure”. Later, the Swedish Massage modality was invented around 1868 by another physiologist  Johann Georg Mezger. Swedish massage is also named as “Classic Massage” in the United States.
