massageMassage is certainly the oldest as well as the simplest way for medical care. The paintings of Egyptian tomb show that people are being massaged. There is no doubt that massage has now been practiced regularly since the ancient times in many of the Eastern cultures. This was also one of key principal ways for relieving the pain for the roman as well as Greek physicians. Moreover, Julius Caesar is also said to have given a regular massage for treating neuralgia which is known as nerve pain. Massage also has lost some of their value as well as prestige with unsavory image that are well created by the “massage parlors.” It is the image that is also quite much is fading since people get the clear as well as complete understanding that even massage will relieve the disease and will also help in the relaxation. Since many people learn about different kinds of benefits related to massage and their relation to the disease, the highly it is being accepted.

Moreover, Massage is also used in the ICU also known as intensive care units, which is specifically for kids, elderly people as well as for babies who are in the incubators, along with the patients suffering from AIDS, cancer, heart attacks and strokes.
