What Is Massage Therapy?
Massage therapy is the practice of using touch to manipulate the soft-tissue muscles of the body. It is performed for a variety of reasons, including treating painful ailments, decompressing tired and overworked muscles, reducing stress, rehabilitating sports injuries and promoting general health. Clients often seek massage for its medical benefits and for relaxation purposes, and there are a wide range of massage treatments available.
Typical Duties of a Massage Therapist
- Therapists conduct an informal interview with the client to learn the person’s medical history and desired results from the massage
- Use massage oils, lotions or creams to massage and rub the client’s muscles
