Massage Therapy Overview

Massage is a wonderful way to relax and revitalize. It also has proven medical benefits, as dozens of clinical studies have reported over the past decade.

Today, you'll not only find massage therapists working in day spas, hotels and resorts, but also in hospitals, convalescent homes and physical rehabilitation clinics.

Because massage therapy has multiple purposes, it also comes in many forms. You may already be familiar with styles of massage linked to countries of origin, such as Swedish, Thai, Japanese (Shiatsu) and Hawaiian (Lomilomi). There are also styles of massage specifically designed to address the needs of pregnant women (pre-natal massage) and athletes who've suffered minor injuries (sports massage). Other common variations include deep-tissue massage, hot stone massage and reflexology, which focuses exclusively on the feet.
