Massage predates Christianity and has examples in Ancient Greece, Egypt and, as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, has been developing in China for over 5000 years. Jivaka was Buddha’s physician and is said to be the Father of Thai massage.
People have been enjoying the benefits of massage for hundreds of years – tight muscles are obviously not a new phenomena!
Massage can provide relief from pain, emotional stress and physical tension. Remedial Massage forms an important role in many of our therapies here at WNT including Physiotherapy, Paediatric and Sports as well as Cranio-sacral & Myo-facial release, which are part of our Osteopathic treatments.
