This style of massage is generally attributed to the Swedish fencing master and gymnastics teacher Pehr Henrik Ling. Ling’s system was the Swedish Movement System or Swedish Gymnastic Movement System.
A massage table is required and it is done directly on the skin with the usage of some oil to help the movement and the contact.
The Swedish technique is great to relax and can really help to reduce the muscular pain and to correct any musculo-skeletal problems.
We can say that the Swedish is relaxing, soft, precise, and relieves pain.
