History of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy dates back literally thousands of years, with the first recorded practices in India and China taking place somewhere around 3,000 BCE. Massage therapy owes its longevity and success to its unique ability to work with the tissues of the body to relieve tension, stress, stiffness, and other symptoms.
Hippocrates himself, the father of modern medicine, expressed the belief that "The physician must be experienced in many things, but most assuredly in 'rubbing' - for rubbing can bind a joint that is too loose and loosen a joint that is to rigid."
