What is a masseuse?


A masseuse is defined as a woman whose profession is to give massages. The word was first used in 1879 and is derived from the French verb "masser," which means "to massage."

Massages are most frequently provided at spas. During a massage, multiple gliding and kneading strokes are used to relieve muscle tension and improve circulation. There are many different types of massages, including deep tissue massage, Swedish massage, sports massage and hot stone massage. Swedish massage is generally recommended for people who have never received a massage. The average massage lasts about one hour and cost varies depending on location.
