    Cool. Because as some of you may know, I am a Massage Therapist (among a few other titles, but those are irrelevant to this conversation) and I see both sides of the spectrum. Some of my patients (I work in a clinic, so they are patients, not clients) are really into massage therapy as a healing tool to get better, while others simply see it as a pampering experience. There's nothing inherently wrong with seeing it as the latter, but when you incorporate MT into a healing regiment, it can be absolutely wonderful and make you feel so much better overall.

    There's many aspects to MT that can be beneficial to most people. I say most, because there are certain medical conditions that would prevent those afflicted from benefiting and there are people who simply do not like to be touched and it would probably cause more issues than alleviate existing problems.

    Reduced stress and improved blood circulation are on the top of the benefits list. Depending on the modality of the massage - and there are MANY - additional benefits are improved range of motion, reduced aches and pains due to knots. trigger points, injuries, posture, lack of activity, and last but not least improved mental health.

    I'm not going to get all salesey about it and my two cents on whether therapy helps people are based objectively on my observations. Yes. Therapy absolute can help. That said, a lot of it does depend on the person receiving the therapy though. If they don't want it and feel forced into it... it probably won't be as useful.
    I wish I could get lucky enough to be forced into massage therapy! I've been forced into alot of therapies but never MT! lol

    Depending on your health insurance plan, it may be included and all you'd need to pay is the co-pay. There are also lots of places that do discounted massages if you sign up for a plan.

    I mostly work on folks who are recovering from auto-accidents. I'm actually looking to start my own business in the near future.
