Massage can be defined as a systematic and scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of obtaining or maintaining health. This history of massage and healing touch dates back thousands of years in all regions of the world. In modern health care, massage has taken an important role in both preventative, restorative, and rehabilitation wellness. It has been shown beneficial to reduce stress, enhance blood circulation, decrease pain, promote sleep, reduce swelling, enhance relaxation and increase oxygen capacity of the blood. Massage has also been recognized as a nondrug treatment for cancer and postoperative pain.
