The Swedish Massage or Classic Massage is a type of massage created by Pehr Henrik Ling that is considered the basis of current chiromassage that relaxes, tones and seeks to release tension.
Many modalities of Western massages, among them the chiromasaje, have their origin in the so-called Swedish Massage. This manual technique combines friction, kneading, and slapping, and is based on knowledge of anatomy and physiology. It is based on Western techniques of anatomy and physiology and has nothing to do with Asian techniques based on energy points or meridians. It is a massage that not only benefits and relaxes the body but also helps us to relax the mind.
Benefits of a Swedish Massage
It’s a technique that will always be good for us, but especially I do it at times when the person has a lot of tension, for example, on the back to a person who needs to rest, release and relax all the pressure and tension accumulated, or in people who suffer a lot in the legs, who are overloaded, who have circulatory problems. It is not a decontracting massage where the person suffers, it is a massage where the person relaxes and needs to relax deeply.
Not only benefits and relaxes the body but also helps us to relax the mind.
