What is Massage Therapy?

Massage Therapy is the art and science of treating the body through massage techniques. These techniques are directed at the soft tissue of the body, which create an effect on the body’s musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, neurological, and gastrointestinal systems. The goal of massage therapy is to prevent, maintain, rehabilitate or improve physical function and to relieve pain.

How can a massage therapist help?
