In massage therapy, a professional manipulates the soft tissues of your body – muscle, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and skin.

Massage techniques are commonly applied with hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearms, feet, or a device. The massage therapist uses varying degrees of pressure and movement. The purpose of massage is generally for the treatment of body stress or pain.

In European countries, a person professionally trained to give massages is traditionally known as a masseur (male) or masseuse (female).

In the United States, these individuals are often referred to as massage therapists, because they must be certified and licensed as “licensed massage therapists”.
