Massage therapy dates back thousands of years, with examples in ancient writings from China, Japan, India, Egypt, and Greece.

Massage therapists use touch with the hands, elbows, or feet, or with stones or other tools to manipulate muscles and soft tissues to relieve pain, reduce anxiety, and alleviate some specific conditions.

Massage therapists often work in private offices, studios, hospitals, or sports facilities.
