Massage in Burnaby
Though massage therapy may be touted by many as the latest and greatest in terms of holistic healing, it is definitely not something new. Its history dates back at least 5,000 years with cultures around the world using some form of it to heal injuries, relieve pain as well as prevent and cure illness.
The practice of massage therapy was given a boost in the early 1800s when a Swedish medical professional formulated and chronicled a style of massage that was proven to help relieve chronic pain—this method is the precursor to what we now know as Swedish massage. By the late 1800s massage therapy was being conducted by practitioners trained in this method and often had their services paired with hydrotherapy and offered in retreats as a “rest cure” for the wealthy—the forerunner to the spas of today.
In many ways, it remained a healing method only for the rich, however, between 1970 and 2000 massage therapy underwent a transformation as people moved to a healthier lifestyle and this holistic approach to healthcare became mainstream. The west coast lifestyle is an embodiment of this practice and one no longer needs to journey to an exclusive retreat or go into the upscale urban center to find this form of holistic healing as massage in Burnaby or any other popular city center is available.
