Massage therapists assess and treat the soft tissue of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments. Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of these soft tissues of the body in order to relieve pain and symptoms of stress or to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function.


Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and optimizes health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Physical function can be developed, maintained and improved; and physical dysfunction and pain and the effects of stress can be relieved or prevented through the use of Massage Therapy.
