What Is Massage Therapy?
Massage is a systematic, therapeutic stroking and kneading of the soft tissues of the body. The word is derived from the Greek ‘masso’, to knead and the Arabic ‘mass’, to press gently. It has been used as a form of therapy for thousands of years and touch is the most instinctive response to pain.
Touch is an essential requirement for healthy development in early life and research has shown the babies who have received massage from their mothers have increased weight gain, increased nerve and brain cell development and better hormonal functioning and cell activity. Earliest records of the use of massage as a therapy come from China over 5,000 years ago.
The use of massage in the West became more popular in the 16th Century when a French doctor, Ambroise Pare incorporated a more anatomical and physiological approach. A Swede, Per Henrik Ling, developed a system of massage and gymnastics in the early 19th Century which became what we now know as Swedish Massage.
