Massage: Friction of Kneading

It is one of the Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), which is found in ancient Chinese medical texts more than 4,000 years ago. It involves the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body by applying the techniques of holding, moving muscles and body parts, fixed or movable pressure etc where touch remains the fundamental medium of the therapy. It is generally administered to improve the blood and lymph flow, enhance tissue healing and reduce muscle tension or flaccidity. It embraces the concept of “vis medicatrix naturae“which means the ability of the body to heal by itself.
