Massage therapy has been used for centuries in both Western and Eastern cultures. Many early physicians referred to touch in their documents, mentioning the uses of pressure, rhythmic movements and the application of oils. Early in the 19th century, Heinrich Ling adapted and defined the massage strokes that form the basis of the Swedish method of massage, the most common method practiced today.
Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body to gain a therapeutic response. The therapeutic use of massage therapy affects the circulatory (blood & lymph), muscular, fascial, and nervous systems of the body. It is effective in controlling chronic or acute pain, reducing stress and creating a sense of relaxation and well being.
