Massage Throughout History

Since pre-history, everywhere in the world that human beings have settled, massage has been important in care-giving and medicine. Some of the earliest Chinese writings, near the start of the Shang dynasty, mention massage. Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, dealt with the therapeutic effects of "rubbing." Among traditional remedies, the effectiveness of massage has always been recognized.

      Moving into the modern era, we have seen that whenever technologies develop, their tools and mechanisms get adapted to massage. Well before 1900 American physician and health pioneer John Harvey Kellogg developed a vibrating chair and wrote of "Mechanical Massage," stating that "much more vigorous, rapid, and uniform movements can be executed by machinery than by the hand, and the movement may be continued as long as necessary," because powered devices never tire.
Some results are acknowledged on the basis of personal experience. Most of us have had some experience of massage, so it's easy to hear testimonials of its soothing and invigorating effects.

      We continue to offer the most advanced and ingenious massage to be found anywhere.
