Massage is a universal instinct. From the earliest times, we have known that it helps to rub a sore limb and that to touch is beneficial. Massage can be traced back through history within every culture, in particular Chinese, Indian, Greek, Persian, Roman as well as Western Europe.
Although massage techniques are based on a mixture of many traditions and techniques, the starting point is to understand the workings of the human body, the mechanics of posture and muscle tone which will enable you to create a treatment which will specifically benefit your client.
