What Is Swedish/Remedial Massage?
Swedish Massage was developed in the early nineteenth century by a Swede, Henreich Ling (1776-1839). He used a scientific system of massage and exercise based on physiology which was not accepted by the medical profession for many years as a form of Treatment. In 1899 Sir William Bennett inaugurated a Massage Department at St. George’s Hospital, London
Swedish/Remedial Massage is defined as the manipulation of soft tissue for therapeutic purposes providing a deeper massage which has both physiological and psychological effects with the ability to stimulate and/or relax the body. This Treatment can be performed using talcum powder, oil or cream.
