Developed by Per Henrick Ling who was a fencing instructor that injured his elbow in the 1830’s the Swedish massage has become one of the most popular and sought after techniques for relaxation.
By tapping his elbow on a table, Ling found that the pain was eased and the elbow became healed. As the news was given to doctors the Swedish massage became a part of many medical and physiotherapy care plans.
When you arrive for your Swedish massage you will be met by a professionally trained and qualified therapist who will help you to feel comfortable. You will be shown to a private room where you may undress and cover yourself with a clean, fresh towel. Within the session you will experience 5 different techniques that will result in an ache free, relaxed state. These are known as Effleurage Petrissage Friction Vibration and Tapotement.
As the Swedish massage is so gentle and focuses only on the soft tissues of your body, it is ideal for newcomers and for those who simply want to relax without having to do any work.
As with any form of relaxation massage, being content in your surroundings is very important. For that reason, there will be soft music and the warm, ambient atmosphere, as well as the burning oil aromas will ensure that your session is exactly as you had hoped.
