Massage is a “hands-on” therapy in which muscles and other soft tissues of the body are manipulated to improve health and well-being.

Varieties of massage range from gentle stroking and kneading of muscles and other soft tissues to deeper manual techniques. Massage has been practiced as a healing therapy for centuries in nearly every culture around the world. It helps relieve muscle tension, reduce stress, and evoke feelings of calmness and peace.

Although massage affects the body as a whole, it particularly influences the activity of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems, promoting an overall sense of well being.

HISTORY OF MASSAGE

Originating in India and China as a natural method of healing, massage was present in ancient times, serving as a prelude to religious rites, and sometimes forming a part of folk medicine practices. Widely practiced in Ancient Greece by athletes before competition, it was also regarded by Hippocrates, Celsus and Galenso as a treatment for various physical and medical conditions.

During the Middle Ages massage lost its’ appeal and was no longer widely practiced until the sixteenth century when French doctor, Ambroz ParĂ© , as a result of his research into human physiology, observed the positive effects of massage in patients after operations, and declared it to be an official method of therapy.

The greatest contribution to the development of therapeutic massage came from the Swedish physician Per Henrik Ling (1776 to 1839). He was co-author of the publication, “Swedish Gymnastics”, which reinforced the relevance of therapeutic massage. Following on from this, Dutch physician Johan Mezger (1839 – 1909) called for a true classic massage school to be created and is widely considered to be the author of the scientific massage. Another significant contribution to the advancement of massage came from the Polish scientist Zabludowski Isidore (1851 – 1906) who believed massage to be equally valid as other branches of medicine.

With a greater understanding of physiology and neurophysiology new massage techniques: segmentary, lymphatic, and periosteum (around the bone) were developed. Despite the struggle for recognition of the medical benefits of massage by the scientific community, massage has nevertheless become a prominent feature of rehabilitative practice worldwide.
