History of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy has been around since the times of Ancient China and Egypt. Massage therapy has been popular for more than 5,000 years, though the practice evolved considerably since then. However, early practitioners already recognized that massage therapy could provide medical benefits for people. Books about traditional Chinese medicine pointed to massage therapy as a natural healing tool.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy offers many benefits for those undergoing the recovery process from substance use disorder. It can help promote relaxation and sleep, as well as removing metabolic waste through therapeutic massage. If you ever had a professional massage in the past, you may remember the massage therapist recommending that you drink more water in the days following the massage to flush out the toxins. This medication-free process can be an effective detox tool for clients of all ages. In addition, massage therapy increases serotonin and dopamine, which are hormones that can help you feel better.
