Massage is an ancient art. Though no one knows exactly when it became a formalized system of touch and pressure, several forms go back to at least 1500 B.C. in India. Often associated with spiritual practices and beliefs, the therapy itself is fully grounded in physiology. Muscles of the type that respond to massage striated like the leg and back, rather than smooth like many organs are made of 'ratcheting' proteins. These molecules slide past one another when nerves are electro-chemically stimulated. The result is a contraction. But they can go 'too far' and become bunched, tense and knotted. Massage relaxes them.

Massage also improves circulation by freeing trapped blood, encouraging the movement of lymphatic fluid and bringing in fresh.

Swedish massage is the basis of all modern massage therapy variations. It is often called Classic Massage. Various techniques used in a Swedish massage don’t sound English and for many of us their meaning is mysterious. Even English terms are hard to understand for many of us.

Effleurage, Petrissage, Tapotement. These are all massage techniques and movents.
