A massage therapist is trained to assess and treat most soft tissues of the human body (muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and other connecting tissue). Once a pattern of muscle dysfunction is assessed and treated, a massage therapist will provide advice and education on stretches/exercises to lessen or eliminate the soft tissue problem.
In the case of injury, either from trauma (e.g. accidents or surgery) or repetitive strain (e.g. poor posture, poor ergonomic design of tools and furniture), a massage therapist can physically stretch muscles, inhibit muscle spasm, increase range of motion of joints and help break down scar tissue.
