Massage Therapist

One of the more expanding and lucrative fields in massage therapy is sports massage. The specific requirements of an athlete require a specific type of therapy. Sports in America have increasingly become more competitive, intensive and taxing, especially within the amateur ranks. Athletes are demanding anything that will strengthen performance and quicken recovery.
What does a Massage Therapist do?

First, we should point out that - in our own way - we are all massage therapists. The most basic form of massage is touching.

We rub our elbow when we bump it on the corner of a table; we hold hands with loved ones to show support and comfort; we pat teammates on the back in assurance and congratulations. All of these are examples of massage in its most basic form. The practice, form, and industry of massage therapy stems from this this natural and basic form.
