What is Wisconsin's legal definition of "Massage Therapy"?
"Massage therapy or bodywork" means the science and healing art that uses manual actions (including includes holding, positioning, rocking, kneading, compressing, decompressing, gliding, or percussing the soft tissue of the human body or applying a passive range of motion to the human body) to palpate and manipulate the soft tissue of the human body, in order to improve circulation, reduce tension, relieve soft tissue pain, or increase flexibility, and includes determining whether massage therapy or bodywork is appropriate or contraindicated, or whether a referral to another health care practitioner is appropriate. "Massage therapy or bodywork" does not include making a medical or chiropractic diagnosis.
You may combine Active Isolated Stretching personal training services with your massage session.
