Career header image

Massage therapy is one of the oldest methods of healing and has been practiced for centuries in nearly every culture around the world.  It is a hands-on treatment in which a trained therapist manipulates muscles and other tissues by using long, smooth gentle strokes or kneading the muscles to relieve muscle tension and reduce stress and improve health and well-being.  

There are several different types of massage therapy including Swedish Massage which is a relaxing, full body massage; deep tissue massage where the pressure is more intense and tends to be more focused on problem areas; sports massage, hot stone massage or aromatherapy just to name a few.

Massage Therapists are often self-employed health professionals and usually work in massage therapy clinics, chiropractic offices, health clinics, rehabilitation centres, health spas, community health clinics or hospitals.
