In this two minute video Dr. Brent Bauer of the Mayo clinic discusses the many ways massage therapy benefits his patients. He suggests doing your homework when searching for a massage therapist, and interviewing your therapist before you first session to see if you are a good fit. He mentions the American Massage Therapy Association’s “find a practitioner” listing for AMTA certified therapists in your area.
