Living in Hollywood, spa massage is very important. Even if we just beg a few moments of a back or foot rub from our significant others or friends, massage can do wonders. There are healing properties in touch alone. However, working out areas of tension in the body helps reduce the risks of depression, anxiety, obesity and strokes. The more stress we have in our lives, the more we look to outside forces to help make us feel better.

We need to start looking for the root of the problem. Massage can't alter processes in the mind, but it can start to loosen the body. When you are relaxed, you are more resilient to injury, physical, mental and emotional. In Hollywood, spa massage is important because there are so many things that cause stress, not counting the traffic and parking. You've got to stay relaxed or you'll just go nuts.

History of Hollywood Spa Massage

Obviously, Hollywood spa massage had to start somewhere. Did you ever wonder about this? Every time you lie down to get a massage, you are partaking in something that has roots stretching back to 3000 BC. This is when the oldest known book on massage was written. It was in Chinese. Then, in 2760 BC, Nei Ching discussed the therapeutic touch.

It wasn't until 760 years later, in 200 BC, when we see the first written documentation of massage actually occurring. In 1000, Homer, author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, documented oils used for massage. Competitors in the Olympic Games back in 776 BC were massaged before the events. However, National Certification didn't come about in the United States until 1992, a full 4,992 years after the first book on massage was written.
