Back Massage

What is Back Massage?

Back massage means only the back is worked on. This technique appeals to people who just do not have the time for a full body massage. The treatment is designed to relax and ease tension in the back where muscle problems most often occur.

Massage therapy history dates back thousands of years to ancient cultures that believed in its medicinal benefits. The first written records of massage therapy were found in China and Egypt. It is considered one of the earliest forms of pain relief, as well as a way to produce a sense of peace and well-being.
