 A Little History About Massage


  Massage as a healing tool has been around for thousands of years in many cultures. Touching or rubbing is a natural human reaction to pain and for conveying compassion and support.Massage is one of the earliest remedial practices of humankind and is the most natural and instinctive means of relieving pain and discomfort, Stop and think about the last time you bumped your head or had a pain or sore spot. What did you do? You Rubbed it, Right?  The same was true of our earliest ancestors. Massage has been a major part of medicine for at least 5,000 years. Since 500 B.C. authors have written extensively about massage in medical books .In the British Museum , records reveal that the Chinese practiced massage as early as 3000 B.C. Massage entered Japan around the 6th century A.D  The Ayur-Veda (Art of Life) a sacred book of the Hindus written approximately 1800 B.C. included massage treatments. The practice of massage spread to Europe and is thought to have flourished well before 300 B.C. Asclepius, a Greek priest-physician who lived in the seventh century said to have combined exercise and massage to treat disease and promote health.Herodotus Hippocrates known as the father of medicine (460-380B.C.) thought that all physicians should be trained in massage as a method of healing. Celsus who lived during the reign of Emperor Tiberius (about 42 B.C.- A.D. 37) and was considered one of the most eminent Roman physicians  wrote extensively on many subjects including massage. Islamic Persian philosopher/physician Rhazes or Razi (A.D. 860-932) a folower of Hippocrates and Galen and a prolific writer wrote several books which included massage in the treatment of disease and the preservation of health.

 In my opinion the public views towards health and massage therapy in particular have changed over the past decade. Not only do massage therapists have the opportunity to bring positive well-being to the client, but clients view the massage experience as positive and a major contributing factor to their overall health
