Massage has been used dating back 3,000 in ancient China. Most ancient civilizations years document the use of massage. The ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians, as well as the Japanese, Romans and Egyptians applied different forms of massage to cure a variety of ailments. Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. These days, here in the 21st century the United States has adopted some of these, and have made others our own. Many different forms of massage therapies are used to offer specific benefits to both the mind and body. When I had my first full Body Massage I was thrilled at how I felt afterwards. As well as feeling refreshed, my skin felt great. This was a bonus!
Upon receipt of a full body massage come the benefits of better sleep, healthier joints and muscles, as well as less stress, better circulation and even digestion. There is a whole series of different massage methods that work from the skin to the deep tissue and organs, with even a variety of oils and scents.
In order to give a massage, specialized massage tables and chairs are used to position clients during massages. A typical commercial massage table has an easily cleaned, heavily padded surface, and a horseshoe-shaped head support that allows the client to breathe easily while lying face down and can be stationary or portable. This is cleaned between massages, keeping everything very hygienic. An orthopedic pillow or bolster can be used to correct body positioning. Sometimes, mats are used.
Ergonomic chairs serve a similar function as a massage table. Chairs may be either stationary or portable models. Massage chairs are easier for the practitioner to transport than massage tables, and clients do not need to disrobe to receive a chair massage. Due to these two factors, chair massage is often performed in settings such as corporate offices, outdoor festivals, shopping malls, and other public locations.
A complete body massage is very personal to many people, and generally entails arms, back, begs, front and back and shoulders being massaged. As all of us have different ailments we all need a tailored massage to suit our own needs. We need to be completely comfortable with our massage therapist, as we are generally completely nude, with towels covering for modesty. Each part that is being massaged will be exposed, while the rest is still covered.
To unwind and relax, try a full body massage. It will make you feel great! In the United States there are about 90,000 massage therapists. Most states in the United States require a license to practice massage therapy. In South Korea, only the visually impaired and blind are allowed to practice massage therapy! Training in the US generally involve between 500 and 100 hours. Make sure to try a Swedish, holistic or deep tissue massage. You will not be disappointed!
