The Therapeutic Value of Massage

ancient massageMassage is one of the oldest forms of healing arts, used as far back as 3,000 years ago. The earliest records are found in China and Egypt, but nearly every other ancient culture in the world recognized the value of touch and of manipulation of the soft tissues to relieve stress and pain, to prevent injury, and to prevent and cure illness.

Today, massage therapy is a highly respected form of holistic healing and is practiced all over the world. There are numerous massage modalities, and some of these have their roots in the past as sacred healing techniques.

Modern massage techniques manipulate the soft tissues and muscular structures of the body to reduce stress, fatigue and pain by improving circulation and lymph flow. Bodywork therapies also address issues involving range of movement and manipulate the energy field to help the body heal itself. Please see the lists of physiological benefits and psychological benefits of massage in the sidebar.

It is beyond the range of practice for massage therapists to diagnose, prescribe, or perform adjustments. Massage therapists must be licensed in North Carolina.

Experts estimate that up to 90% of disease is stress-related. This makes massage and bodywork an important ally in keeping us healthy and in slowing the aging process. In response to massage, beneficial physiological and chemical changes cascade through our bodies. Making a regularly scheduled massage part of your self-care can slow-down the aging process and keep disease at bay.
