What are the benefits of massage?

Massage - the manipulation of the soft tissue of the body - has been used as a healing therapy for many thousands of years. Records dating back to 2700 B.C. show that in China massage was used to treat paralysis, chills and fever. Hippocrates, the famous Greek physician writing in 400 B.C., recommended that physicians should treat sports and war injuries with massage and rubbing.

The ancient cultures of Japan, Egypt, Rome and Arabia all considered massage to be calming, soothing and relaxing, and also very important as a healing therapy. Now, in the 21st century, there are many different kinds of massage therapies available, each of which offers specific benefits to the mind and body.

Massage is defined as a scientific method of rubbing, kneading and manipulating the body to stimulate circulation and improve the metabolism and the breakdown of adhesion.

In a more therapeutic sense ''massage therapy'' is the sharing of touch, a form of relaxation and a soothing way of removing aches and pains through massaging the muscles of our body. Most people carry some form of tension in the body through physical or mental stress.

Massage is one of the oldest methods of healing and for the treatment of illnesses, aches and pains. Observations of animals in the history of human society shows that physical contact has great value in promoting a better well being and general health.

The sense of touch is nature''s way of communication with our body. As a child we are picked up by our parents and people who care for us. They hugged, kissed and cuddled us. What happens when we grow up? Somehow it seems we lose this body contact. Some of us would consider it lucky to get a peck on the cheek by our loved ones. Did we forget that it as comforting? Why don''t we do that more often? Have we lost our sense of awareness of what it means to have body contact to keep the communication "sense of touch" going between us?

Apart from taking away your stress and helping you relax, having a massage treatment will improve your circulation, helps to remove toxins in your body and strengthen your immune system. Most people enjoy it because it soothes way the tension in your body.
