Massage Therapist

Massage, bodywork and somatic therapies are defined as the application of various techniques to the muscular structure and soft tissues of the human body. Massage therapy can alleviate pain, reduce stress, and improve overall emotional well being. Massage is a healing art that has been in use for centuries. Chinese, Hindu and Persian records dating back thousands of years document techniques used to help joint and circulatory problems.

There are over 250 different types of massage, bodywork, and somatic therapies and many practitioners utilize multiple types in their practice. The various techniques may include stroking, kneading, tapping, compression, vibration, rocking, friction, and pressure to the musculature and soft tissue.

The services of a professional may be covered by health insurance when prescribed by a chiropractor or osteopath. Therapies provided as part of a prescribed treatment by a physician or registered physical therapist are often covered.
