Massage is considered a beneficial method of treatment for the body as well as the spirit.
It helps blood circulation, offering a feeling of well-being as well as relief from muscle pain
The word is derived from the French "massage" -friction of kneading - which, in turn, comes from the Arabic word مَسَّ massa meaning to "touch, to feel"
History of Massage
Massage has been used as a therapeutic method since ancient times. Ancient Greek athletes used massage in order to be in excellent physical condition before a competition.
During the 5th century BC, Hippocrates, in order to treat physical injuries, used “friction”, while at the same time, he suggested to his fellow doctors to use the same method.
In Rome, during the 1st century BC, one of the physicians of several emperors, Galen, began using massage to treat various physical injuries and illnesses.
In China, massage therapy dates back to around 2700 BC. Chinese massage therapy methods arose from the view that diseases arise from a lack or imbalance of the body’s energy. Through massage, Chinese healers believed that energy flows better and more harmoniously, allowing the body to heal itself naturally.
Massage therapists are in high demand in the job market as it is an industry that is growing and evolving every day. This is because the modern lifestyle is inextricably linked with stress, pressure, and fatigue. Many people turn to massage treatments to deal with muscular as well as mental strains.
Thus, massage sessions are increasing, and as a result, massage school graduates are also increasing.
