Massage, stems from the French word massage, meaning “friction of kneading” and influenced by the Arabic word massa, meaning “to touch, feel or handle”, is one of the oldest forms of natural treatments. The notion of massage was first documented in China in the second century B.C., as it became the recommended treatment for certain ailments. This spurred out of the acts of many, who relied on their natural instinct to rub a hurt area.

The act of massage is often defined as the application of various techniques to the muscular structure of the body, including the soft tissues. These techniques focus on the manipulation of the body’s muscles and soft tissues. Other targets include tendons, ligaments, skin, connective issues, and joints, along with lymphatic vessels or organs of the gastro-intestinal systems. The application of the therapy is often done with the use of the therapist’s hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm or feet, depending on the type of massage or treatment is given. Due to the many different types of massages available, a massage can be both therapeutic and corrective.

The purpose of massage therapy is to undo the stress and damage that the muscles endure for whichever reasons. When muscles become stressed, they tend to block oxygen and nutrients, which leads to inflammation. This inflammation builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. A massage will help the muscles release the toxins, while getting the blood and oxygen circulating properly. It is therefore important to drink plenty of water after a massage to assist the body in getting rid of these toxins.
