Actually massage was applied in Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy
3,000 years ago. In China it was called Tui Na (“Tui” means push
and “Na” means grasp.). It was also called An Mo(“An” means
press and “Mo” means rub.). Massage was also used for pleasurable
purposes. Chinese believe that humans were one integral part of
nature. Yin-yang balance and harmony are very important for health.
Blood vessels and blood are like the river and water in the nature.
If the river is blocked it will result in flooding. The same thing
happens in our body: as long as there is blockage caused by whatever
reason, we feel uncomfortable, with neck pain, stiff back, foot
pain and other uncomfortable symptoms. Chinese massage, using the
arms, hands, fingers, elbows and knees as tools, is applied to part
of the body or the entire body thus it can treat certain diseases.
Massage can protect health and build up body immune system as a
preventive medical measure.

Foot massage gained its popularity during last few years. According
to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the feet of the human body contain
nerve endings that are connected to every other part of the body.
With that in mind, they believe that a specialized foot massage,
which centers on specific points of the foot, can help alleviate
any ailment anywhere in the body. The Chinese believe that if there
is a painful area on the foot, it is an indication of something
being unwell somewhere else in the body. Based on those beliefs,
the Chinese have used foot massage as a means of health care. Actually
reflexology is the base of theory of foot massage. There are over
7500 nerve-endings in the foot that connect to all other parts of
our body. A trained reflexologist applies targeted pressure at various
points on the foot, to stimulate those nerves to treat the diseases
and strengthen the body.

then back again to the toes. After that she will press the points
on sole of foot to stimulate the nerves. Experience foot masseuses
