Records dating back to China, 5000 years ago show that this is not anything new. In fact, the ancient civilizations such as the Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and the great Hippocrates wrote papers that recommended the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems.
First of all, lets look into what a massage entails. Massage is the manipulation of superficial layers of muscle and connective tissue, to enhance function and promote relaxation and well-being. Massage became popular in the US in the 1800s and grew in popularity until the 1930s and 40s. With the development of modern medicine, it was discounted as lesser than. It made a re-appearance in the 1960s and 1970s when nurses began to use it to alleviate pain in patients. In the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta massage was deemed a core medical service and its popularity rose again.
There are many ways of having a massage done. There are also many types of oils, seeds etc that can be used. A person receiving a massage may be on a mat, chair, or table, usually without clothes, but covered with towels or sheets. If one is uncomfortable with this, he/she may wear underwear. As far as remedies, oils may be used to cause relaxation or to stimulate blood flow. Body rocks, warm and cold coated in different sorts of oils such as fractionated coconut oil, grape seed oil, olive oil, macadamia oil, sesame oil, pecan oil and mustard and aromatherapy oils are also used. What a combination! A salad dressing of oils may help give you the best massage!
If you are a heart surgery patient, note this: a scientific study performed on heart surgery patients showed there was a significant decrease in levels of stress after a foot massage. Reducing stress levels can help the body in many ways, mentally and physically as well. You will always come away from a good massage with a wonderfully relaxing and calming feeling. Massages can also reduce pains and tiredness.
To have a massage while pregnant would be great. To know that my physical pain, stress and anxiety, as well as hormonal issues could have been alleviated by something so good for me is comforting. A calming, refreshing massage I will be seeking if blessed with another child. Be sure to look for a certified pregnancy massage therapist and be sure to consult my doctor. I will not go through another pregnancy without one! When pregnant, this is certainly the best type of massage for a pregnant lady!
