Conceptualized back in 1812, the Swedish massage incorporates five basic principles, which include: Giving long and smooth strokes; gentle kneading of the muscles; applying therapeutic friction; tapping (otherwise known as hacking); and providing constant vibration. The combination of these techniques ensures maximum circulation and relaxation that develops the flexibility of the one being massaged. It is no wonder why a flock of followers wanted to learn from the popular massage art of Henri Ling (the Swedish physiologist who developed this massage), up to this day.
Moreover, the Swedish massage makes use of a drape to cover the body during the actual session. This drape is then moved systematically throughout the massage. This massage is meant to be relaxing, for it is a serene and calming form of massage.
1. The Swedish massage is a gentler and softer massage compared to the more intense and forceful deep tissue massage.
2. The Swedish massage is best for those who have very sensitive skin types, that bear rashes easily, most especially when powerful friction and rubbing is applied.
3. The Swedish massage is the massage of choice for those who are normally stressed from work or home issues, whereas, the deep tissue massage is for those who are in chronic pain, were involved in many strenuous activities, or who are continually troubled by previous injuries.
