Although the term Massage is used liberally today, the Art of Massaging dates back over 4000 years. The Egyptians and the Chinese have been regarded as the 
originators of the massage.  Indians, Greeks and Romans are all reported to have used massaging as a healing and medicinal practice .

Hippocrates, regarded as “The father of medicine,” is 
reported to have changed the methodology behind massaging.  Before Hippocrates, it was common to use
massage as means to expel evil spirits and disease by using swiping motions away from the core of the body.  Conversely, Hippocrates, around 350 B. C., stressed that massaging towards the core of the body, or heart was, indeed, practical to eliminate waste products from the rest of the body.

In fact, Hippocrates wrote “For rubbing can bind a joint that is too loose, and loosen a joint that i s too rigid. It is, thus, due to Hippocrates that many forms of modern massaging techniques exist.  A number of traditional massaging techniques are still practiced to this day.
