Swedish massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues, with the use of hands, fingers, thumbs and elbows. The term ‘soft tissue’ refers not only to the muscles, but also the tendons, ligaments and the fascia which surrounds all structures within the body.
Swedish massage, as we know it today, dates back to the 19th century and was developed by Professor Ling of Sweden. The preference then was to use talc; today carrier oils are more popular, mainly because of their therapeutic properties but also because they aid fluidity of movements, moisturise the skin and generally add to the relaxation value of the treatment.
