By working hands-on with muscle tissue, tendons, and ligaments, massage therapists treat patients to relieve pain, reduce stress, and improve general wellness. There are more than 80 types of massage specializations, including cranio-sacral/myofascial release, reflexology, and deep tissue. A therapist will work with a patient based on a medical inquiry intake, and determine treatment goals. Many states require both training and certification for a career as a massage therapist.
