I am not sure how many calories a swedish massage burns. I pretty much don't count massages as exercise. However, I have seen a discussion around here somewhere that it may burn as few as 60 or as much as 300, I think. However I would go for the lower number because I don't feel that swedish gives me much of a workout. What are your thoughts on it ?

Yes I like being a therapist. I do the basic Swedish massage and I do it part time nights and weekends. I am not drinking enough water but I'm trying at it !

Welcome to the team. I think this is a fairly slow moving team, so jump right in and get things moving!! How is your weight loss going ? Are you drinking your water. Do you like being a massage therapist? What is your specialty ?

I have been a therapist for 3 years now and I specialize in deep tissue. I also do Reiki, hot stones, pre-natal (when I MUST), etc.

I work at it full time.
