Massage has been practised throughout the centuries since the earliest civilisations. It has been used medically as a therapeutic healing treatment and for invigorating or soothing the body. Various movements are performed for the purpose of promoting circulation of the blood and lymph, relaxation of muscles, relief from pain, restoration of metabolic balance and many other benefits both physical and mental.
Touch is one of the earliest senses that we develop, one of the most vital and the most natural means of relieving pain and discomfort.
