About MASSAGE Magazine

MASSAGE Magazine supports massage therapists and students with the information and products you need to succeed over the lifetime of your career.

Established in 1985, MASSAGE Magazine has been in publication longer than any other massage magazine and is the preferred trade publication for massage therapists. MASSAGE Magazine publishes articles on technique, business, news, self-care, research and more. From the classroom to the session room, our focus is on helping you reach clients with your healing touch, and in supporting your satisfying and long-lasting practice. 

Our staff is dedicated to the success of today’s massage practitioners, bodyworkers and partners—such as schools, continuing education providers, employers, and businesses that offer products and services—all of whom are also making this a healthier world, one massage session at a time.

MASSAGE Magazine’s free guide to studying for the MBLEx is intended to help you become licensed. Our comprehensive liability insurance will protect you, both as a student and practicing therapist. Our online continuing education classes will assist you in meeting regulatory requirements.

The award-winning monthly MASSAGE Magazine has been in print publication since 1985, and features advice from top educators, in depth information about hands-on techniques, marketing guidance, scientific research, self-care lessons and more. Our weekly free e-newsletters keep you up to date with industry news.

MASSAGE Magazine‘s popular social networks, including our Twitter feed, and Facebook page and group, offer therapists networking opportunities—and our website is updated daily to reflect the diverse needs of your profession.
