History of Massage
Did you know massage was thought to have originated as far back as 3000 BCE? Some thought it a way to connect with a higher power. Many used it to help heal the sick and injured. Even ancient Egyptian tomb paintings have been discovered which depict the art of massage being performed. In Japan with the rise of Buddhist practices, monks often relied on massage for medicinal purposes.
When we move to the modern era, we see that the rise of massage practices is fairly significant in the late 19th century. Later, in the 1950s and 60s massage really gains momentum and not just for injury related purposes. People during this post WWII period truly begin to recognize the more holistic benefits of massage.
Massage Tempe and The Rise of the Day Spa
In the later part of the twentieth century is when we start to witness the widespread popularity of massages performed in luxurious day spas. People wanted to combine their deep tissue, or hot stone or Swedish massage with the ambiance that only a spa could provide. Why not make it an all-encompassing experience. Why not provide guests with gorgeously appointed rooms, fresh fruit, dim lights and soothing, soft music to heighten the effects of the massage. Thus, an industry was born!
