Massage therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine used to prevent and alleviate symptoms and to promote relaxation, healing and an aura of health and happiness. There are many different types of massage therapy, but all involve hands-on pressing, rubbing, and kneading the soft tissues. The massage therapist primarily manipulates the patient with trained hands and fingers, but may also at times make use of the forearms, elbows, or even the feet during treatment. Massage therapy is considered safe, simple and effective for most patients, offering many benefits and very minimal risks.
While massage therapy can be very beneficial when practiced by a skilled practitioner, it can be ineffective or even dangerous if the massage therapist has not been properly trained. Patients considering massage therapy should do research prior to treatment to make sure the therapist has a state license or certification.
