The History of Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy has a rich history dating back thousands of yrs. with roots in various cultures such as China and Greece. The Eastern influences are steeped in old, traditional medicine from China and India yet healing traditions hail from Roman and Greek physicians, Egyptians such as reflexology and Shiatsu(acupressure).

Modern western massage known as Swedish Massage is the most common and most well known modality here in the west. In most foreign countries,where the healing and therapeutic effects of massage have been respected and valued for many, many yrs., massage therapists, are part of the health care system. Way back in the day a Dr. would write a prescription for multiple massages more readily than for a tranquilizer. Massage therapy was the the popular method of choice when it came to treating illness and disease long before drugs came into existence. Prescribed massage sessions was a treatment protocol.

With the advent of Physical Therapy and the creation of drug therapy,Massage Therapy took a back seat. In the 1970’s, a revival started and the movement picked up momentum in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Along with its growth and evolution, the term bodywork has emerged. There are many disciplines that work with the body structurally, with the body’s energy, with movement and the manipulation of soft tissue. Multiple modalities are available and the term massage therapy does not cover them all. Bodywork is currently one of the most popular and most often used methods for managing stress.

Massage Therapy is 100% natural, no artificial ingredients and no assembly or batteries required.
