What is Swedish Massage?

Swedish massage was developed by Per Henrik Ling from Sweden. This type of massage involves the use of slow, rhythmical and therapeutic movements with the intention of manipulating the soft tissues of the body, particularly muscles. Swedish massage can be used for relaxation, stimulation or rehabilitation of the body. Swedish massage uses a lighter amount of pressure compared to that used in other types of massage such as sports massage or deep tissue massage.
