A massage therapist is someone who is trained and skilled in massage therapy for medicinal benefits. Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft-tissue and muscles of the body and it is used for many different reasons. Among the reasons for massage therapy is to relax overworked and tired muscles; to treat pain that results from any number of ailments; to aid in the rehabilitation of athletic injuries; and to support overall good health.
Requirements for massage therapy training and the standards can be different in each state. A high school diploma or its equivalent is always required to enter either private or public institutions that offer massage therapy training. Most schools that provide massage therapy training offer either full or part time programs.
Usually, massage therapy programs are approved by a state board and they may often be accredited by separate agencies that are independent from the state.
The boards that issue massage therapy licenses can choose which tests and certifications to accept on a state-by-state basis. Someone hoping to practice massage therapy in a particular state should check what requirements that state has before he or she completes training.
