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 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. More and more, people in the Fort Walton Beach area are coming to A Day Away Massage & Spa on a regular basis to receive a Swedish Massage. That’s because this type of massage not only feels great but has many health benefits.

Can I still get a Swedish Massage if I have a back injury?

Absolutely. Some massages are too aggressive to perform on a person who has experienced some form of back trauma, but a Swedish Massage is gentle enough to relax your joints and flush out metabolic waste from your muscles. In fact, a Swedish Massage is one of the best massages to get if you have an injury, as the treatment is designed to dissolve scar tissue adhesions.

Can a Swedish Massage help with Stress?

Certainly. If you’ve been considering massage therapy as a way to combat the stresses of everyday life, you’ve come to the right place.
