Massage Therapy

This module covers the basic details you will need to know to adequately inform patients about massage therapy.

Massage is in the top ten of most commonly used CAM therapies in the United States, according to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (2007 survey). Because of its prevalence and potential benefit for musculoskeletal concerns among others, it is important for health care professionals to be able to counsel patients about massage and discuss appropriate use.
