"I believe that the LMT [licensed massage therapist] is the professional best suited to treat the major physical issues of our time comprehensively -- whether hip, shoulder, knee, foot, low back, neck, or anything else. You have the time to engage a process with the client, you can educate and soothe, and you can work with the nervous system, muscles and joints all at the same time."
