Therapeutic Swedish massage is probably the best known and most common form of massage in the western world and beyond. It is performed by registered massage therapists and is primarily based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology.
Swedish massage is ideal for individuals trying massage for the first time. It is the foundation where many other types of massage such as deep tissue massage, sports massage, and even aromatherapy massage developed. Many people who experience Swedish massage for the first time, are hooked after just one session on that particular type of massage.
