Massage therapy refers to the skillful physical manipulation of the soft tissues of the body in order to promote relaxation, blood circulation, muscle tone, and/or treat health conditions. It may involve stroking, kneading, tapping, or vibrating body tissues in specific ways in order to address specific concerns. Licensed massage therapists in Texas are specially trained to assist state residents with physical injuries, soft tissue strains, joint issues, digestive issues, headaches, insomnia, anxiety, and other health concerns. However some clients may seek massage services for comfort, relaxation, or connection.
