History of massage
Massage has long been used for the purpose of non-drug prevention and treatment of diseases. For millennia, massage techniques and techniques have been constantly improved. Therefore, over time, it not only did not lose its significance, but, on the contrary, constantly confirming its effectiveness, is widely used throughout the world.
MASSAGE is a multifaceted art used in almost any situation. People of many professions spend almost all their working hours on their feet. This adversely affects blood circulation, leading to pain, cramping and swollen ankles. Most people periodically feel tension in the neck and shoulders.
Often after a hard working day, it seems that terrible fatigue is falling on your shoulders. Awkward weight lifting causes lower back pain, the most vulnerable area of the back. Many suffer from headaches. Headache is a common symptom of stress. There can be many reasons. For example, you spent too much time at the monitor, you have insomnia or overwork. Each of us involuntarily rubs the painfully aching point of the body in order to achieve some relief, since massage is the most effective method of muscle relaxation. Muscle tension can only be relieved by massage. Oriental or classic, sports or therapeutic – you just have to choose the right technique and relax, so that after an hour you feel like after a short vacation. Health is priceless. It must be protected and constantly strengthened.
A correctly performed massage can affect not only the muscles themselves, but also the whole organism.
the total skin area of an adult is about 2-2.5 square meters,
skin weight – about 3 kilograms.
Skin area 2 sq. Cm. contains:
over 3 million cells
from 100 to 300 sweat glands,
50 nerve endings
about 1 meter of blood vessels
Research data has shown:
if a person is lightly taken by the hand, then his heart rate will slow down and his blood pressure will drop,
in children and adolescents hospitalized for mental disorders, irritability decreases noticeably, and there are positive changes in the perception of the surrounding reality if they rub their back slightly for a short time every day,
arterial obstruction in rabbits receiving food rich in cholesterol, if they are gently stroked gently, is observed in 60% of cases less often than in rabbits receiving the same food, but devoid of caresses,
in rats, which were kept in their hands for 15 minutes every day during the first 3 weeks of life, brain cell degeneration and memory impairment caused by aging were much less pronounced than in rats that were not taken into hands,
40 preterm infants were divided into two equal groups. In one group of children, they gently stroked daily for 45 minutes, and in the other, no. After 10 days, the children in the first group weighed 47% more than in the second, although both received the same amount of calories.

What is massage?
Massage – comes from the Greek word “massage”, which literally means “crush”. Massage has long been used for the purpose of non-drug prevention and treatment of diseases. For millennia, massage techniques and techniques have been constantly improved. Therefore, over time, it not only did not lose its significance, but, on the contrary, constantly confirming its effectiveness, is widely used throughout the world.
There is an assumption that the first methods of massage arose due to observations of animals. Subsequently, these movements, repeating the caresses and games of our smaller brothers, resulted in some oriental massage types that were exotic to us.
