Massage therapy is a profession in which the practitioner applies manual techniques with the intention of positively affecting the health and well-being of the client. An increasing body of research shows massage therapy reduces heart rate and can help lower blood pressure. The most common types of massage are Swedish massage, deep-tissue massage, Shiatsu-acupressure, neuromuscular, trigger point and sports massage. This program meets the state of New Jersey requirements for licensure as a massage therapist.
