Swedish Massage is a classic Western massage, in Europe it is considered the standard traditional massage.
The first systematization of massage techniques within a method is attributed to the Swedish physician and physiotherapist Pehr Henrik Ling (1776-1839), defining indications, contraindications, nomenclatures, manual skills and deontological rules. In 1813 in Stockholm he founded the Ling Institute of Modern Gymnastics. Starting from Ling's methods, which were popularized in Europe by his students, the German orthopedist Albert Hoffa and the Dutch doctor Johan Georg Mezger developed the classical massage and manipulation techniques still used today.
Generally it is performed on the whole body, but having fairly free maneuvers between them and non-rigid sequences, it can also be performed only on single parts. It is performed with massage oil and generally on a bed.
