Massage – Swedish / Relaxation

Per Hendrick Ling (1776 – 1839) of Sweden developed a method of massage and medical gymnastics which became universally known through his published theories of massage and movement and through foreign students studying at the Central Institute of Stockholm from 1813. Today we refer to most “standard” massage as Swedish massage or sometimes as “relaxation massage” and the stroke names of “effleurage, petrissage, friction and tapotement” have become associated with the basic techniques as first illustrated by Ling.
