Massage is the treatment and practice of manipulation of the soft body tissues with physical, medical/therapeutic, and in some cases psychological purposes and goals.
The word comes from the French massage “friction of kneading”. Massage involves acting on and manipulating the patient’s body with pressure, tension and motion by manual means. Target tissues during massage may include; muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, and/or organs of the gastrointestinal system. Massage can be applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, forearm, and even feet.
In professional settings, massage involves the client being treated while lying on a massage table, sitting in a massage chair, or lying on a mat on the floor. The massage subject may be fully or partly unclothed. Parts of the body may be covered with towels or sheets.
Developing a rewarding massage therapy career can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. Most successful massage therapists reach a good practice level within two years, though some can take longer. If you are to be a successful massage therapist you should focus on a number of important elements, and these are all covered within this certification course.
