What is Massage Therapy? A massage therapist is a trained medical professional who specialises in treatment of the soft tissues of the body, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and skin. Massage therapists use varying degrees of pressure and movement in their treatments.
Massage therapy is a part of integrative medicine, and is offered alongside other medical treatments. It may be used to treat a wide range of medical conditions, such as sports injuries; motor vehicle accident injuries; back and neck pain; stress/tension reduction related to work/home, cancer, heart disease, stomach problems or fibromyalgia and improved immune function.
