Massage Therapists

Massage therapists offer massage therapy to clients. Massage therapy is said to be relaxing in that it eases tired and aching muscles, using various techniques. Massage is said to boost function, help speed-up the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibit motor-neuron excitability; in general promote relaxation and well-being. Massage means friction of kneading, or to touch, feel or handle. Massage therapists work and act on the body with pressure, structured, unstructured, stationary, or moving- tension, motion, or vibration, done manually or with mechanical aids. Massage therapists target muscles, tendons, ligaments and lymphatic vessels to relax and rejuvenate the body. Massage can be applied with hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearms and feet. Massage therapists also use various aroma therapeutic oils for their purposes.
