THE BENEFITS OF TOUCH
Touch is the most fundamental of the senses, being necessary to sensory perception as well as to self-awareness. The practice of using touch as a healing method derives from customs and techniques rooted in ancient history.
In ancient Greek medicine, Hippocrates had a high regard for massage and considered it to be one of the arts with which a well-rounded physician should be familiar with. “The way to health is to have an aromatic bath and a scented massage every day” wrote the Greek philosopher, also considered the Father of Medicine.
Today, massage therapy stands as a highly-respected holistic healing method and therapists practice a multitude of techniques, where ancient wisdom combines with modern methods.
Regardless of the type of massage you’re looking for -pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic- or the reasons you might seek it out -a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management- massage therapy is a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
