What is massage?

The word massage is originally a French term meaning "friction of kneading."

Αlso it comes from the Latin word massa meaning "mass, dough", from the Greek verb μάσσω (masso) meaning "to handle, touch, to work with the hands, to knead dough" or from the Arabic massa meaning "to touch, feel or handle".

A baby's sense of Touch develops while it is still in the womb.

Instinctively humans respond to pain by touching and rubbing the spot that hurts.

So Massage is the use of touch as a therapy based on the principles of anatomy, physiology and pathology for therapeutic or preventive purpose.

Therapists primarily use their hands, but may also use their forearms, elbows, feet or massage equipment.


Massage history

Massage therapy is one of the oldest health care practices known to history.

Almost all cultures have developed systems of therapeutic massage customized to their tradition.

The earliest written records of massage therapy were discovered in Egypt and China (2.700 B.C.).

Ancient Egyptian tombs have been discovered adorned with images of figures being massaged. Specific massage modalities, such as Reflexology, have been depicted in hieroglyphs as forms of hand and foot therapy.

The development of the Chinese tradition came from the synergy between four groups, doctors who brought the sophisticated medical theories of TCM to massage, martial arts who combined deep experience of qi with great ability to heal injuries, Buddhist and Taoist adepts who used massage as an essential support to their spiritual yoga and laymen often blind practitioners offering massage for pleasure and relaxation.

In ancient Greece first Asclepius referred on mysterious force of the human body which he was energized mainly by massaging.

The Greek god considered the massage as the most important way of treatment, along with hydrotherapy, relaxation, diet, herbal medicine and psychological counseling (psychotherapy). He used even reptiles as a means to treat his patients. A serpent was his constant companion therefore the Rod of Asclepius, a single serpent entwined around a staff became the distinctive symbol of doctors and has been the emblem of the modern medicine even today.

Another significant figure in massage therapy history is Hippocrates, a great Greek physician and commonly accepted as the father of medicine whose technique changed the way massage had been practiced for centuries. He stressed that massage should be directed toward the center of the body or toward the heart. His rationale for stroking upwards was to help eliminate waste products from the body. Hippocrates believed that a good physician must be experienced in many things but assuredly also in rubbing (anatripsis) for things that have the same name have not always the same effects. For rubbing can bind a joint that is too loose and loosen a joint that is too rigid. He taught his students the advantages of rubbing for self-healing of the body.

It is also worth mentioning the importance of massage during the Olympic Games. The coaches belonged in three categories: the trainers, the gymnastic coaches and the 'sprinklers' whose job was to sprinkle the bodies of the athletes with herbs and essential oils so they all had massage in order to keep their body in optimal condition before the games and to promote rapid removal of toxins and waste products from the muscles.

References to massage appear as well in writings from ancient Japan, India, Arabic nations, Persia, Rome. In modern age several people Jack Meagher, George and Charles Taylor, Sigmund Freud, Wilhelm Reich, credited as the ones who adopted names, practiced or established new massage methods.  Such as the Swedish physician Per Henrik Ling, the Dutch practitioner Johan Georg Mezger, the English John Grosvenor, Matthias Roth, Dr. I.M. Sarkisov-Sirasini,

Modern massage therapy continues to re-discover and adapt ancient practices from cultures all over the world. Nowadays massage fills a special need for relaxation and promotion of health in an increasingly complex and mechanized world where these are often in short supply.

Getting Started

It's easy to get started creating your website. Knowing some of the basics will help.

What is a Content Management System?

A content management system is software that allows you to create and manage webpages easily by separating the creation of your content from the mechanics required to present it on the web.

In this site, the content is stored in a database. The look and feel are created by a template. The Joomla! software brings together the template and the content to create web pages.

Site and Administrator

Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "This Site" menu or by adding /administrator to the end of you domain name.

Log in to the administrator using the username and password created during the installation of Joomla.

Logging in

To login to the front end of your site use the login form or the login menu link on the "This Site" menu. Use the user name and password that were created as part of the installation process. Once logged-in you will be able to create and edit articles.

In managing your site, you will be able to create content that only logged-in users are able to see.

Creating an article

Once you are logged-in, a new menu will be visible. To create a new article, click on the "submit article" link on that menu.

The new article interface gives you a lot of options, but all you need to do is add a title and put something in the content area. To make it easy to find, set the state to published and put it in the Joomla category.

You can edit an existing article by clicking on the edit icon (this only displays to users who have the right to edit).

Learn more

There is much more to learn about how to use Joomla! to create the web site you envision. You can learn much more at the Joomla! documentation site and on the Joomla! forums.
