Massage May Be Good For Many Reasons
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
The need for human or animals to be touched is very instinctive, tracing back to ancient times or among different animals.
Archaeological evidence of massage has been found in many ancient civilizations including China, India, Japan, Korea, Egypt, Rome, Greece, and Mesopotamia. Even as we look at the etymology of the word for “massage”: it comes from the French massage “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”
Some of my friends are routinely getting massages to relieve their stress and tension.
“Americans are looking to massage for much more than just relaxation,” says Mary Beth Braun, President of the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association). “Massage therapy can be effective for a variety of conditions, including arthritis, lower back pain, insomnia, headaches, anxiety, circulatory problems, and recovery from a sports injury.”
