  • Therapeutic massage

    Therapeutic massage is primarily a way to indicate to the customer that the massage is therapeutic purposes and health benefits. Massage had a seedy reputation in the 1960s and even beyond. Massage was associated with “massage parlors” that were essentially places of prostitution.  Calling it “therapeutic massage” was part of a the professionalization of massage therapy. It is a way to communicate that this was a massage for health, and that no sexual contact was involved.  The massage will be a little more intense than a pure relaxation massage and perhaps deal with long-term or chronic issues. The most common examples would be a deep tissue massage or sports massage. The therapist uses more pressure and cross-fiber friction in order to get knots (also known as adhesions)
