Chinese Massage

According to history, a famous doctor named Bian Que used this method to treat a prince in Guo - an ancient Chinese nation. It is 2,000 years from Qin Dynasty to the present, so we can say that the massotherapy has a very long history. The earliest massotherapy in China is called Massotherapy Classics of Hunagdi, but unfortunately it had been lost. In the Medical Classics of Huangdi, the massotherapy method was mentioned several times. People in ancient times treated diseases like insensitive limbs, fainting etc by massotherapy.

There are two types of massotherapy. One is active massotherapy. It also called as Self-massaging. And the other type is passive massotherapy where the doctor massages the patients.. There are 8 massaging manners. They are harmonized by the doctor, and do not function in isolation.
