The History of Body Rub Massage

Massage therapy (i.e. body rub massage, body rub) was first employed thousands of years ago. Ancient writings include references to massage in Indian subcontinent Greece, China, Egypt, and Japan.

Massage first became popular in the United States during the 19th century. In the middle of the 20th century, advances in medicine overshadowed massage treatment. Then, massage started a revival in the 1970s.

The purpose of massage is to relax the tissue, increase the flow of blood and oxygen, and decrease pain.

Researchers at Ohio State University tested the benefits of massage. Here are some findings:

Within days, muscles massaged after exercise recovered about 60 percent of their strength. This result compared to recovery of about 14 percent of strength in muscles that were simply rested.

Muscles massaged after exercise had fewer damaged fibers and almost no sign of white blood cells, compared to rested muscles. The absence of white blood cells indicates that the body did not have to work to repair muscle damage after exercise. The massaged muscles weighed about 8 percent less than the rested muscles, indicating a reduction in swelling.

There are more than 80 different kinds of massage.

Shiatsu massage: The therapist applies varying, rhythmic pressure from the fingers on parts of the body that are believed to be important for the flow of a vital energy called qi.

Deep tissue massage: This form of therapy employs patterns of strokes and deep finger pressure on parts of the body where muscles are tight.

Swedish massage: The therapist uses long strokes, kneading, and friction on the muscles. Joints are moved to increase flexibility.

Trigger point massage: This is also known as pressure point massage. The therapist applies deep focused pressure on knots that can form in the muscles and cause symptoms in other parts of the body.
