Deep Tissue Massage:
The History of Massage
Massage is one of the oldest forms of health care available today. Manuscripts and artwork from all over the world have shown people being massaged. Alternative health systems such as Ayurveda and
Traditional Chinese Medicine used massage to treat injuries and disease. Hippocrates once wrote, "The physician must be experienced in many things, but most assuredly in rubbing." As well “Look well to the spine for cause of disease”
Massage as a modern therapeutic practice was established by a Swedish gymnast in the 19th century. Per Hendrik Ling developed a system known as Swedish Massage that has remained one of the most popular techniques available today.
There are dozens of massage techniques today that are used for a variety of different conditions and problems. Massage therapy is one of the leading alternative health practices amongst Spinal Adjustments that are only performed by a license doctor of Chiropractic and Physical Therapy used in the Western world today.
A Powerful Ally
There's no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives, we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into:
· Decreased anxiety.
· Enhanced sleep quality.
· Greater energy.
· Improved concentration.
· Increased circulation.
· Reduce fatigue
Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.
