So many massage therapists do not realize the power they have within their profession. As a chiropractor for over 30 years I have accumulated all kinds of equipment i.e.; ultrasound, muscle stimulators, mechanical massagers, etcetera. Yes they still are useful but my hands are my most powerful tools. I can be soothing or deep with pinpoint accuracy. My hands assess and treat at the same time. There is incredible healing power in our human touch that no machine can duplicate.
