Massage is one of the oldest of therapeutic methods. It originated in India and China, where it formed part of religious rituals. The first mentions of massage are found in Egyptian papyrus scrolls, and the first exact description is recorded in the Kung-Fu book from 3000 BC. In the times when priests were also doctors, they recommended massage as a part of their religious practices. However, over time its therapeutic significance increased. The term "massage" comes from the Greek word "massein", which characterises the act of "kneading", and it was combined with the Latin word "manus", meaning "hand".
