Why Licensed Massage Therapists prefer the term Massage Therapist
States (like Texas) that regulate massage generally require practitioners to graduate from massage school, pass a licensing exam, pay a licensing fee and earn continuing education units in order to maintain licensure. Most massage therapists purchase liability insurance as well. Strict codes of conduct must be adhered to, and therapists who are found to have acted outside the law can lose their license.
Why not the terms Masseur and Masseuse?
The titles masseur and masseuse (the feminine form of the word masseur) have a long and colorful history related to massage. Both terms were used to describe men and women, respectively, who provided massage in exchange for payment. But these terms, especially masseuse, were hijacked by irreputable women operating under the guise of “massage,” beginning in the 1950s. Over the past 30-plus years, massage professionals have worked to help get laws enacted that protect titles that reflect their training and professional standards. Today, state laws protect titles including massage therapist, massage practitioner and massage technician. Still, the words masseuse and masseur live on as ways of describing the kind of touch not practiced by educated massage professionals.

Trigger Point massage is also known as neuromuscular therapy or myofascial release massage. It consists of concentrated pressure on the areas of muscle spasm or stress. This technique typically produces initial soreness and "good pain" during the massage. This is NOT your "fluffy" massage!
HOT STONE MASSAGE
During a hot stone massage the therapist heats as many as 50 basalt stones of varying sizes to 120–140º F, rubs them over your oiled body, and rests them on top of and beneath you—on your stomach, in your palms, on your back. The stones’ warmth enhances the relaxing effects of the pressure. Some people believe the stones have healing, grounding qualities, which makes hot stone massage a more profound experience than your basic massage. The therapist will leave some of the smooth, heated massage stones in contact with your body and use others to massage you.

Benefits of massage
Back pain relief
Studies have found therapeutic massage to be effective for persistent back pain. Preliminary evidence suggests that massage, but not acupuncture or spinal manipulation, may reduce the costs of care after an initial course of therapy by reducing need for painkillers by 35%.
