Massage was a physical therapy technique consisting of manual or machine-aided application of pressure to the soft tissues of the body. When employed in the fields of medicine and sports, it was intended to alleviate pain, heal injuries of the muscles, tendons and ligaments, relieve stress, and improve the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids. (VOY: "Resolutions", "Scientific Method", "Pathfinder", "Endgame")

Massage was also practiced for erotic purposes and a popular prelude to sexual activity among many humanoid species, notably the Humans, Vulcans, Bajorans, Risians, Talaxians, Iotians, Argelians, Ocampa and Ferengi. (ENT: ""; TOS: "A Piece of the Action", "The Enterprise Incident"; TNG: "Ménage à Troi"; DS9: "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places"; VOY: "Elogium", "False Profits")

The Edo on Rubicun III used to give and receive massages along with kissing and making love. (TNG: "Justice")

Intendant Kira often received massages from her Vulcan slaves. (DS9: "Through the Looking Glass")
