Massage and Bodywork - F.A.Q

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy means many things to many people. In fact, a recently published article identifies more than 80 different styles of massage, many of which have been developed in the last 30 years!

In 2006, 39 million Americans -- one in six adults -- had at least one massage, according to a nationwide survey by the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).
