Arguably the most common type of massage is the Swedish massage.
Swedish massage is based on anatomy and physiology, which means that it
takes into account the way the human body works, and uses that knowledge
to make for a better, more effective massage. Even though no two
massage therapists are different and everyone uses the same pressures,
speeds, and focuses on different areas slightly more than others, there
are certain constants for every Swedish massage. An interesting fact is
that this type of massage is only called "Swedish massage" in countries
that speak English or Dutch.
