Swedish
Massage
Miho specialises in swedish massage and works from several locations in Tokyo. If you are after a classically trained massage therapist then inquire to Miho.

Swedish massage is the most commonly offered and best known type of massage. It was developed by a Swedish physiologist, Henri Peter Ling at the University of Stockholm in 1812. It uses a firm but gentle pressue to improve the circulation, ease muscle aches and tension, improve flexibility and create relaxation.

Swedish massage employs five different movements:
* long, gliding strokes
* kneading of individual muscles
* friction
* hacking or tapping
* vibration
The therapist usually uses massage oil to facilitate making long, smooth strokes over the body.
Swedish massage is done with the person covered by a sheet, a technique called "draping". One part of the body uncovered, massaged, and then covered up before moving on to another part of the body.
Swedish massage is the foundation for other types of Western massage, including sports, deep tissue and aromatherapy
Miho is trained in several styles so please state your preference if you have a favorite.
