Defeat Business Stress with Massage Treatments

Massage is a treatment that has been around much longer than most people think. Dating back thousands of years with origins in India, massage treatments were used for centuries before finding their way to China, South-east Asia, and Egypt. The therapy was brought to Japan and has been documented as being used by the Romans and Ancient Greeks.

The modern ‘Swedish’ massage that we know today was developed in the early 1800s to relieve chronic muscle pain by a doctor and gymnast. Further techniques and movements were incorporated into the overall massage treatment and the demand for massage therapists steadily increased.

Over the years massage therapy evolved to become a legitimate medical technique that is used the world over to combat an array of problems and has continued to grow in popularity as people opt for an increasingly holistic lifestyle.
