What is Body Massage?

Body massage was developed by a Swedish physiologist, Henri Peter Ling at the University of Stockholm in 1812.


Massage oils or other lubricants could be used to facilitate making long, smooth strokes over the body. Body massage can be done with yourself covered by a towel, a technique called "draping". One part of the body will be uncovered, massaged, and then covered up before moving on to another part of the body.



What are the techniques used and what are the benefits of them?

Oil is usually used, first warmed in the therapist's hands, which may facilitate the stroking and kneading of the body, thereby stimulating metabolism and circulation. Its active and passive movements of the joints could help promote general relaxation, improve circulation and range of motion, and relieve muscle tension.


Massage techniques usually go in the direction of blood flow toward the heart because there is usually an emphasis on stimulating the circulation of the blood through the soft tissues of the body.


There are a number of soft tissue manipulation techniques used in Body Massage. These techniques include Effleurage, petrissage and skin rolling which aim to soothe, bring circulation to the area, help unwind taut muscles and fascia, improve skin tone, increase vitality and energy, soothe the nervous system and muscles and more.


The recipient of Body massage may be completely undressed or remain in underwear. The therapist leaves most of the body draped by a sheet or light cover, exposing only the area to be massaged. About (2008).
