Experience Ancient Asian Massage Techniques
When you think of the birthplace of massage therapy and massage healing, you more than likely think of healers across Asia. The continent known for engineering massage therapy techniques that we still use today continues to innovate. At West Garden Spa in midtown Manhattan, we help you relax with real, beautiful, experienced Asian massage therapists who have been taught the ancient arts of massage and can use those talents to help you release all the stress you’ve built up from your daily life.
The Asian Origins of Massage
It’s believed that massage was practiced as far back as 3,000 B.C. in Ancient Chinese culture, which contributed to the origins of healing techniques still used today, like accupressure. In fact, before chemical knowledge of medicine was crudely engineered in ancient cultures around the world, the ancient Chinese, Egyptians, and other cultures were committed to techniques of “healing by touch.”
From Chinese massage stemmed other Asian techniques, such as Thai massage, believed to be engineered around 2,500 years ago. Shiatsu massage followed, a Japanese form of massage known for healing properties from extremely disciplined techniques using pressure in various pressure points that the ancient Japanese believed were connected to common illnesses and physical issues.
The common thread between all forms of Asian massage? The belief that not only could massage release tension and help muscles and joints work better, it could improve clients’ health simply by manipulating certain parts of the body. At West Garden Spa, we feel there is validity in these ancient beliefs, and if you come in for our Asian massage services, you’ll certainly leave feeling healthier and more prepared to deal with whatever life throws at you.
