Massage

The word massage comes from the French meaning "friction of kneading", or from Arabic massa meaning "to touch, feel" or from Latin massa meaning "mass, dough", cf. Greek verb μάσσω (massō) "to handle, touch, to work with the hands, to knead dough". The earliest written records of massage therapy were discovered in Egypt and China. Tomb paintings in Egypt depict individuals being kneaded by others. Massage is classed as a therapy and there are many different types of massage therapy that can help with physical problems such as Thai Massage, this type of massage includes compression of muscles, mobilization of joints, and acupressure. Neuromuscular therapy is just one of many more therapies and uses a form of soft tissue manipulation that aims to treat underlying causes of chronic pain involving the muscular and nervous systems. This medically-oriented form of massage addresses trigger points (tender muscles points), circulation, nerve compression, postural issues, and biomechanical problems that can be caused by repetitive movement injuries. It is not just about physical relief but an individual’s spiritual state is also affected by the stress that person is going through. For anyone who has tried to meditate or pray with emotional distress or sore muscles, it can be very hard to focus. But when the mind and body is relaxed, the spiritual state should see a similar improvement.
