Swedish massage is the father of all Western massages. It is a technique created in the nineteenth century by the Swedish doctor Per Henrik Lin. Its properties are decontracting, however, its style is totally relaxing.
Because in the West there was not the same culture and education around massage as in the East, it was necessary to create a routine of movements that was easily accepted by Westerners: Americans and Europeans; who, unlike the Orientals, see in the massage a means of pleasure and relaxation.
The Swedish massage consists of a series of gentle and rhythmic manipulations throughout the body. It works with medium pressure and with movements such as effleurage, fans, eights and wrist rotations. In this massage there are few percussions with the hands and work, although it is strained the muscle, seeks fundamentally relaxation through the softness of the movements.
Swedish massage is the basis of most relaxing massage techniques. Their movements are slow and the therapist’s hands “knead” the muscles in their different groups, trying to relax them and make the patient aware of what he is feeling. It is an optimal massage for those who find it difficult to stay in the present moment or who have perceived the feeling of living distracted or out of themselves.
