Massage, The Ancient Art of Healing

China has the earliest writings about massage that date back to 3,000 BC. The ancient Greeks and Romans would use massage in the aid of healing and to for massage's health benefits. Homer talked about an oily medium used for massage in his writings at about 100 BC, and Hippocrates advised a daily massage and aromatic bath for maintenance of ones health. Today we use massage for relaxing the mind and body from the stresses of life, as well as therapeutic purposes. High stress levels have been proven to cause or aggravate many health problems. Touch stimulates the brain to produce endorphins, that act as pain suppressors and mood elevators. Massage has been shown to be not only a treatment that makes us feel good, but also enhances our immune systems, and lowers stress hormones. Massage Therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints.  It is also an alternative health option to help alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular overuse and many chronic pain syndromes. It can also greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning, if employed early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury. Massage therapists work to improve the circulation of blood through the body and to speed the removal of metabolic waste products from muscles. Their skilled kneading increases the flexibility of muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissues. Some people visit a massage therapist to relieve pain or to warm up before a sporting event. Others want to relax and reduce stress.
