Massage therapy (including myotherapy) is the practice of kneading or manipulating a person’s muscles and other soft-tissue in order to improve their wellbeing or health. It is a form of manual therapy that includes holding, moving, and applying pressure to the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.
You can check out a massage school in your area or find a massage therapist who works at home if you want to find massages at a more reasonable cost.
Massage therapy can sometimes be covered by insurance if it is used to treat a specific medical condition. Some insurance companies will cover massage therapy as part of chiropractic care.
