Massage therapist

A massage therapist (also known as masseur/masseuse, but these terms are now dated) manipulates the soft body tissues (such as muscles, tendons and ligament) of clients using touch to produce a variety of end results, such as relaxation, stress relief, injury rehabilitation/prevention, pain relief and accelerated recovery from vigorous sport or activity. As a result of these varied goals, massage therapists tend to specialise, e.g. working for professionals in a particular sport or in a day spa. Moreover, there are many different massage techniques, such as myofascial/trigger point release, Swedish, reflexology, Shiatsu and more. Discover what it’s like to be a massage therapist below!
