In this vein, the purpose of this study was to examine the effect of Swedish Massage upon physical fitness care focusing on the lower part of the body as an alternative to vital-energy-pathway massage and soon. Study findings are as follows: First, respondents think physical fitness care against obesity is an important matter. Second, the practice of Swedish Massage seems to lower blood pressure temporarily and decrease the average circumference of the femoral region gradually. But it is difficult to conclude that the change in the body mass index (BMI) and the body fat amount is derived from the practice of Swedish Massage. Third, as for the satisfaction of lower body part care by Swedish Massage, their overall satisfaction is high in general. In conclusion, the Swedish Massage has positive influence upon physical slimming, skin improvement, body circumference reduction, beauty culture and soon. Since current laws are uncertain in that whether a vital-energy-pathway massage is allowed at a skin or obesity care center or not, the Swedish Massageis seemingly an alternative program of physical fitness management.
