The Swedish Massage, which was conceived by Henri Peter Ling, a Swedish physiologist at the University of
Stockholm, was publically introduced in 1812 as a means of improving blood circulation, of relieving muscle
stress and pain, of increasing flexibility and of promoting total relaxation of the body and mind. The Swedish
Massage was imported into the United States in the 1850s by Charles and George Taylor, two American brothers
practicing medicine in New York who opened the first two Swedish clinics in the New World; the first in Boston,
Massachusetts and the second in Washington, D. C.

Since its inception in the early part of the 19th century, the Swedish Massage had become one of the most
widely used massage techniques in the Western world and it is the basis for a number of other Western
massage therapies which include the Sports Massage, the Deep Tissue Massage and the Aromatherapy. To
attain its objectives, the Swedish Massage utilizes seven basic therapeutic movements:
• Effleurage. These are long gliding and soothing strokes which are aimed toward the heart while tracing the
natural curves of the body. Massage oils are often used to facilitate smooth movement and to warm the
• Petrissage. These are movements which use strokes that lift, roll or knead soft body tissues. This process
draws blood into the area and helps relax tense muscles and fascia as well as the rest of the body.
• Pinpoint Pressure. These movements are directed toward points that are knotted or hardened and painful to
the touch. Pressure is directed to these points in order to break them down and release the muscle.
• Deep Friction. These are very small circular movements which press slightly below the surface of the skin and
onto the muscle beneath it. These strokes relax muscles which contracted and tensed due to overuse or as a
result of emotional stress at their deeper levels.
• Skin Rolling. This movement involves pinching a fold of skin and moving it forward in a rolling motion. This
process lifts skin off its connective tissues to promote better blood circulation for the improvement of skin
• Tapotement. This movement requires rhythmical tapping with cupped hands or with hands set in the karatechop position. This practice awakens the body into vitality and the tingling sensation of energy and health.
• Finger Brushing. This movement is usually performed at the closing of the Swedish Massage treatment
session as fingertips are lightly brushing against the surface of the skin to relax the stimulated muscles while
calming the nervous system.

The most outstanding health benefits of the Swedish massage are in:
• Relaxing of tired, tense or overused muscles.
• Improving blood circulation without overburdening the heart.
• Increasing flexibility and widening the range of motion by stretching the body’s soft tissues: muscles, tendons,
ligaments, skin, joints and connective tissues.
• Stimulating the nervous system while simultaneously relaxing the nerve endings.

“If you want to relax, watch the clouds pass by if you’re laying on the grass, or sit in front of the creek; just doing nothing and having those still moments is what really rejuvenates the body…”.
