Wondering… what is massage therapy? Massage, the manual manipulation of soft tissue to enhance overall well-being, is considered to be among the oldest of all treatments used by humans. Chinese records dating back three thousand years documented its use. The ancient Hindus, Persians, and Egyptians used forms of massage for some ailments, and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Today, massage is an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs and has proven beneficial to many chronic conditions.
Massage provides relief to people from all walks of life—anyone can feel a need for massage at some point in time.
