About This Quiz

The art of massage is one that has been practiced for thousands of years. Believed to have started on the Asian continent, this movement has crossed both borders and continents and is available on even the tiniest of islands. But because of the time that has passed on how widespread the practice has now become, there are so many techniques available that we sometimes have a hard time choosing what exactly it is that we want. 

But we won't go into all the massaging techniques that exist. We're only going to quiz you on the more common or basic ones, like the Swedish, the shiatsu, the hot stone, the deep tissue and more. We'll tell you a bit about each massage in the question and it will be up to you to guess which one we're talking about. If you can do this with all our questions, and answer them correctly, you'll be a certified massage therapist in our books. Let's just hope that it doesn't take you the duration of a massage to get this done. 

So. if you're ready to begin, let's get to the first question!
