History Of Swedish Massage

The history of Massage Therapy can be traced back over 5,000 years varying in many different types and applications. Chinese, Persian, and Egyptian cultures have all recorded the use of Massage Therapy for a variety of purposes including the improvement of circulatory and joint movement issues.

There are numerous types of massage, but perhaps the most popular and commonly known is Swedish Massage, which was first introduced as medical gymnastics in the 19th century by Swedish Psychologist Pehr Henrick Ling. He created a system of massage, using old techniques used by ancient Greeks and Romans to enhance many physical benefits.

Others believe that Dutch practitioner Johan Georg Mezger is the true developer of the techniques of Swedish Massage. He created the French names of the techniques incorporated within this type of massage.Massage is generally assumed to be a lavish comfort that only the wealthy can afford. This idea has been changing throughout the course of history. Presently, Swedish massage is used not only to relax the human body, but to increase the overall health of the person receiving it.

Circulatory System

  • Increases circulation and lowers blood pressure
  • Emphasizes the elimination of metabolic wastes. This is also effective because it lessens ischemia (reduction of blood supply to organs and/or tissues which affects muscular pain)
  • Improves the lymphatic system which also removes waste from the body thus resulting in less swelling from injury 

Endocrine System

  • Releases endorphins
  • Mechanically stretches and elongates muscles
  • Stimulates parasympathetic nervous system
  • Reduction in pain
  • Helps improve weak muscles
  • Supports relaxation and improves sleep 

Muscular System

  • Alleviates the restriction of muscles as well as tension and stiffness
  • Enhances blood circulation
  • Increases flexibility and durability of muscles
  • Delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the muscles which reduces muscle fatigue and soreness. 

Respiratory System

  • Stimulates slower breathing
  • Breaks up mucus and other respiratory discharge in the lungs.
  • Allows the body to become relaxed and begin the repairing process
  • If you're suffering from a cold, this is helpful because it helps you to rid your body of these toxins at a faster rate 


  • Can relieve colic and gas as well as constipation
  • Promotes better digestion 


  • Relaxes body and mind
  • Improves all over well-being of the individual
  • Relief of inner tension and stress (Salvo)
