Spas are an important facet in the far eastern culture, renowned for its fast-paced lifestyle. Many would seek solace and restoration from their daily routine through a rejuvenating massage.
Massaging has likely been part of the human race since the dawn of time and would have been discovered by accident but the earliest documented evidence of these techniques have emerged from China dating back to 3000 BC. These manuscripts which were carefully preserved through time have been pivotal to a global acceptance of this form of therapy.
Massage, a systematic manipulation and rubbing of bodily tissues and muscles to relax and soothe aches. The Chinese focused on a combination of herbs, exercise and massage to treat illness and maintain health.
The general practice of Chinese massage grew from a combination of philosophies, including that of traditional Chinese medicine, the practice of martial arts, Buddhists and Taoists, who view touch as a key component of spiritual growth. “Chinese massage methods originated from the principle that diseases and illnesses arise due to a deficiency or imbalance in the energy in specific pathways or meridians that represent physiological systems.”
The Chinese medicine practice of utilizing massage for relaxation and restoration of vigour is widely used while another form of massage is primarily used as physiotherapy and used for the purpose of eradicating diseases such as cancer and migraine.
