Job Description for Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT)

A licensed massage therapist (LMT) uses massage to help patients with pain and/or to help them relax. They use their hands to knead, rub, rock, compress, and stroke specific areas of the client's body to help relieve pain caused by stress, injuries, and surgeries, stimulating blood circulation and relaxing muscles. Some therapists also use methods such as water therapy and steam and dry heat treatments in addition to massages. There are many different styles of massage therapy, such as shiatsu, reflexology, Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, and hot stone massage, among many others. Most therapists know and use many different techniques.

The therapist is also responsible for interviewing clients, checking their medical histories, and preparing massage oil and other needed equipment. Additionally, they are in charge of maintaining records of treatments, consulting with other health practitioners to ensure the client receives proper treatment, and referring clients to other therapy as needed. Licensed massage therapists may run their own business or work in establishments such as spas, healthcare centers, retail centers, and resorts.

The requirements for becoming a licensed massage therapist vary by state. In most states, a high school diploma or equivalent is required before enrolling a school with a massage therapy program.
