Massage or Massotherapy
The idea that the sick can be cured through contact is ancient. The first written document on massotherapy of which there is evidence is Chinese and is 3,000 years old (The Kong-Fou book of Lao-Tse written in the 6th century B.C.). The Hindus, Egyptians and ancient Persians had their manual techniques; there are Egyptian references dating back to the 22nd century B.C., where they describe manual treatments for the healing of ailments.
For Babylonian-Assyrian medicine, massage was considered useful to restore the imbalance that was causing an ailment to the sick person, and the Persians had chapters on massage in their medical writings.
The word massage has various roots, such as the Arabic “mass” (to palpate or touch) or the Greek “massein” (to knead or rub). Therefore we can know that in these cultures massage was also an important branch of therapy. From Greece comes the “Father of Medicine”, Hippocrates of Cos, who in the 4th century B.C. emphasized the enormous importance of frictions and taught them to his students. About six centuries later, his great follower Galen studied exhaustively the manual techniques and wrote extensively about massage.
