Swedish Massage Therapy

This type of massage uses strokes, kneading and friction to promote general relaxation, improve blood circulation, and relieve muscle tension. It is the most common type of massage in the industry today.


Deep Tissue Massage

A type of massage designed to focus on deeper layers of soft tissues; muscles as well as tendons, targeting knots and chronic tension.


Sports Massage Therapy

A circulatory massage similar to Swedish, yet the strokes are more muscle specific and faster paced. The blood vessels are compressed towards the heart. This is a good massage for athletes to speed up recovery from fatigue or injury and reduce the risk of injury.

What to look for in a massage therapist
When selecting a massage therapist, you want to make sure that he or she is skilled, knowledgeable and ethical. The easiest way to ensure this is to ask whether they are nationally certified. If so, there should be a certificate from the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) in their office – or an NCBTMB decal.

To be nationally certified, a massage therapist must:
  • Demonstrate mastery of core skills and knowledge
  • Complete 500+ hours of massage education
  • Pass an NCBTMB standardized exam
  • Uphold the organization’s Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics
  • Take part in continuing education
Massage therapy is not regulated in every state, so it is important that you look for the profession’s official seal of certification. It is your assurance of a competent and qualified practitioner.

Certification and excellence go hand in hand.

What is massage therapy?
Massage is believed to be one of the oldest forms of medical care, dating back to the pharaohs of ancient Egypt. Its vital role in healthcare was universal. In 2700 BC, a Chinese book of internal medicine recommended “the massage of skin and flesh”. More than two thousand years later, Hippocrates – the father of modern medicine – wrote that “the physician must be acquainted with many things and assuredly with rubbing” (the ancient Greek word for massage).

Today, the term massage therapy is used to describe the manipulation of soft tissue – muscles, skin and/or tendons – by fingertips, hands, fists, elbows and even feet. Bodywork is a general term for manual techniques that involve touch and movement and are used to promote health and healing.

Almost a quarter of all American adults have received at least one massage in the past twelve months. And the number continues to grow as more and more people discover the benefits of massage – for relaxation, rehabilitation and rejuvenation.

What to expect when receiving a massage
Although no two massages are alike, there are some things that are universal. Sessions generally take place in a quiet, comfortable room. It may be dimly lit and soothing music is often played.

The practitioner will begin by asking questions, such as the reason you are seeking massage therapy, any injuries or medical conditions you may have, and any other information that may help them better serve you. The massage therapist will then excuse himself/herself so you can disrobe to your level of comfort. You will then get on the table under the provided cover and relax, either face up or face down.

You will be draped at all times – only the area being worked on will be exposed. A typical full body session includes your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck and shoulders. Oil or lotion is often used.

When the massage is complete, the practitioner will leave the room so you can get dressed. Sit up slowly and, in the hours after your massage, drink plenty of water. There are many types of massage, so each experience varies. To learn more about techniques and terms, refer to the glossary in the consumer section of NCBTMB’s website, www.ncbtmb.org.

About NCBTMB
The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) is the national credentialing body for massage therapists and bodyworkers. It develops standardized exams that cover a core body of knowledge, promotes professional development and offers a recertification program to renew its credential. NCBTMB was founded in 1992 to protect the public and uphold a national standard for the industry that, until then, did not exist. Both of its exam programs have been accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
