What does a Massage Therapist do?
A Massage Therapist uses manual therapeutic techniques to massage soft tissues (such as muscle) that have been affected by stress, injury and illness. The primary goal of massage therapy is to loosen and relax muscles and their surrounding connective tissue coverings, and relieve the painful muscle tension that inevitably erodes your energy level.
Massage therapy stimulates the release of endorphins, the body's natural pain killers, and it increases circulation. It can also reduce stress, renew energy, increase flexibility, facilitate postural alignment, strengthen the immune system, help people reconnect with their inner self, help eliminate toxins, improve sports performance, and ultimately, maintain and improve an individual's health, vitality and well-being.
Massage Therapists are usually trained in a variety of techniques, the most common being Swedish massage, hydrotherapy, sports massage, deep tissue, chair massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, lymphatic drainage and spa treatments. Some practitioners do focus on a particular technique.
Massage Therapists practice in a variety of settings, such as private offices or massage therapy clinics, chiropractors' or doctors' offices, with sports teams, or at athletic clubs, resorts, spas, yoga retreat centers, golf courses, beauty salons, dance studios and cruise ships. Others may own their own practice. Some Massage Therapists have portable equipment and work at their clients' offices or homes.
