About Sports and Therapeutic Massage

The benefits of massage have been recognised  for many thousands of years. The earliest records  date to China  in 2700BC and massage was practised by many other ancient cultures including Indian, Egyptian, Greek & Roman.

How does it work?
Massage was used in World War 1

In the 18th and 19th centuries massage became popular in Europe through Swedish Massage under the influence of Per Henrik Ling. Captain Cook recorded how a massage he received in Tahiti cured his sciatic pain and massage was used extensively in World War I for shell-shock and nerve injury. It was the foundation of what is now known as Physiotherapy.
