When one stops to consider all of the amazing things that we humans have accomplished since the beginning of our time on Earth, it is clear that some of the most innovative and significant advances have taken place in the field of medicine. Naturally, medicine has been a long-time focus: for as long as we've had pain, injuries, and illnesses, we have been searching for cures. When we think about healing, our minds too often go to prescriptions and highly-advanced machines--but the truth is, the study of medicine encompasses a much wider variety of fields. One such discipline that has recently experienced a rapid growth in popularity is the massage, because aside from being relaxing massages can also help to relieve pain.
Massage--as an art, a discipline, and medicine--has an impressive presence throughout human history. Different cultures experimented with and perfected the techniques, modern medicine contributed additional knowledge, and the result is a modern-day massage that can ease stress, relax the mind, and ease pain, all at the same time. It's clear that the power of touch is more influential than we originally realized. Although massages are generally regarded as an alternate medicine, their healing power is worthy of respect for a variety of reasons.
So, how do massages do so many good things for the body? Here's a quick look.
