Massage therapists, also known as masseuse, use their hands, and sometimes other parts of the body like the elbows, knees, and feet, to knead and rub muscles. Massage devices may also be used. While massages are usually performed while the client is lying down on a special massage bed, aquatic massage takes place while the person is immersed in water.
Some people seek massage for relaxation while others use massage to relieve aches and pains. It’s an especially great remedy for soothing stresses, strains, and tension.
There are numerous types of massage, with some masseuses offering a range of treatments, and others that offer just one type of massage therapy. Some practitioners offer mobile services, where they will visit people at home or another location, some have a dedicated room in their own home for treatments, and others work out of a beauty salon or beauty parlour. Massage services are very common at spas.
Some of the different types of massages include Swedish massage, Thai massage, hot stone massage, aromatherapy massages, whereby the masseuse uses essential oils, reflexology massages that focus on certain pressure points around the body, often on the feet, deep tissue massages, and the Japanese technique of shiatsu. Some clients may request massages on certain parts of their body, for example the neck or back, and practitioners may offer special sports massages, massages for pregnant ladies, and others.
