Massage therapists use touch to relieve pain, help injuries heal, improve circulation, reduce stress, promote relaxation and support wellness in their clients. These complementary health professionals do a lot to help people feel better. They manipulate muscles and soft tissue and are highly knowledgeable in the human body. Massage therapists are also responsible for maintaining treatment records, ensuring sanitation and safety protocols are met and communicating with care. They can be found in spas, gyms, cruise ships, medical offices, hospices, long-term care facilities and many other locations.
