Massage therapy has a rich international history that spans thousands of years – from ancient Egypt and China and is now at your local Elements.
Archaeological evidence of massage has been found in many ancient civilizations including China, India, Japan, Korea, Egypt, Rome, Greece, and Mesopotamia. A tomb in Egypt dated back to 2330 BCE has a mural depicting a man having his hands and feet massaged, and massage is mentioned over thirty times in the Huangdi Neijing, an ancient Chinese text that is referred to as the foundation for traditional Chinese medicine. Massage therapy was used in the middle ages, but became popular during the mid eighteenth century. After a brief waning of popularity during the 1940s, massage therapy is now one of the fastest growing health treatments in the United States with 87% of individuals understanding that massage therapy is beneficial to health.
