I began the study of massage thinking it was all art and no science. All relaxation and no result. What I learned instead was that a good massage therapist makes a serious study of anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology. That the real power of massage is in understanding how the body works, how its muscles are oriented, and how its physiological processes can be manipulated to guide the body back toward balance. It is the science that transforms a “masseuse” into a therapist.
Massage therapy, at its finest, is a blending of the art of healing touch with the science of knowing where and how to apply it. My goal as a massage therapist is to bring both of these disciplines to my clients to relieve pain and encourage the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
