History of Massage

 History of Massage

The archaeological evidence found on massage can be traced back to many ancient civilizations. Many  ancient cultures from all over the world  understood that massage and natural healing could relieve pain, prevent and cure illnesses, and heal injuries.

Massage therapy has been part of the traditional Holistic system of healing almost about 5000 years ago. Massage therapy aims to heal patients by using the sense of touch and by manipulating the muscle and other soft tissues of the body. The objective is to relieve pain, provide help in healing injuries, improve blood circulation, increase relaxation and aid  with general health and wellbeing. The first written record of massage can be observed in India, China and Egypt.
