Origins of Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage was invented by Per Henrik Ling in the 1830s, a fencing instructor who realised that by tapping his injured elbows he could effectively cure his ailments. Along with this ‘percussion’, other strokes are used within the massage to soothe and relax but to also stimulate.
