What is a massage therapist?
A massage therapist is a very specialized hands-on practitioner. In a standard visit, they will often ask some questions to get to know the patient and their health problems. However, the patients will spend most of the time on the table receiving a treatment with quite a bit of pressure and different type of movement to muscles and a few joints. Treatments from a massage therapist compliment physiotherapy and chiropractic care, and can help reduce pain and stiffness.
Here at Inovo Medical, we have an amazing massage therapist named Hongxu Zhang.
