SWEDISH RELAXATION MASSAGE
Swedish relaxation massage is a massage technique developed in Sweden in the 19th century by physician Per Henrik Ling. This method of massage uses kneading, gliding, and pressure movements to help relax muscles and improve blood circulation. Swedish relaxation massage can help reduce stress, relieve muscle pain, and improve flexibility. The therapist applies moderate to strong pressure using hands, elbows, and forearms to work on both the superficial and deep layers of muscles and release tension.
