The Massage Artist

Posted on April 13th, 2012 by Shari´ Parks

Great massage therapist effortlessly blend science and art to address each clients needs for a satisfying experience. Massage requires a therapist to be both analytical and artistic. The therapist must analyze the client through a health history intake process, visual assessment and palpation of the clients tissue.

Anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology inform specific massage techniques, but the smoothness of the therapists hands, and the ability to transition smoothly from one smooth stroke to the next, give the massage flow and fluidity.

This ability to tap into natural rhythms and graceful movement over the body is the art of massage.
