Definition:

Massage is the manipulation of the body's soft tissues and muscles. Massage may be the oldest method of treating human illness. It is mentioned in a Chinese medical book dating back over 3,000 years.

Eastern forms of Massage are energy-based systems derived from the theory that a vital force circulates throughout the body.When this force is blocked by tension or injury, illness or pain results. The aim of Eastern techniques is to unblock areas where this force has become trapped, and restore energy flow.

There are different types of Massage such as Shiatsu, Reflexology, Accupressure, Swedish and Sports Massage.
