Massage Methods

History Massage is the manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance the function and promote relaxation and well-being.[1][2] The word comes from the French massage "friction of kneading", or from Arabic massa meaning "to touch, feel or handle" or from Latin massa meaning "mass, dough".[3][4] In distinction the ancient Greek word for massage was anatripsis,[5] and the Latin was frictio.
