Prince Court Medical Center Has Earned Its Royal Name

The Prince Court Medical Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is making a big name for itself. In 2013 the facility fell at number one (#1) in the world for medical tourism hospitals! This was the first time the MTQUA gave the top spot to a Malaysian hospital. 

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is probably the most famous form of massage. This style of massage involves targeting the upper layers of the muscles combined with movement of the joints.

The strokes used in Swedish massage are mainly divided as follows:

  • Effleurage. This is targeted at soft tissues through smooth, gliding strokes
  • Petrissage. This involves rolling, kneading and squeezing.
  • Tapotement. This is done with cupped hands, edge of the hands or fingers through short tapping strokes.
  • Friction. This is done by causing soft tissues to rub against each other through circular movements.

    Swedish massage can help with recovery after an injury or just help with relaxation and rejuvenation.
