What is a Swedish massage?

A Swedish massage is what most people think of when they hear the word massage. It involves long, gliding, kneading motions worked over the entire body.

Was the Swedish massage actually developed in Sweden?

Yes! We at A Day Away Massage And Spa get this question quite often. It was developed by Per Henrik Ling, a Swede, in the early 1800s. However, in Sweden and throughout most of Europe, the Swedish massage is simply referred to as a classic massage. Ling’s method has been practiced for centuries and has become one of the most popular techniques in North America.
