What is oriental massage

An oriental massage, sometimes also called an Asian massage, is a type of massage therapy intended to relieve pain and tension through strategic pressure. The biggest difference between an Asian massage and a more standard muscle massage is the ideology underwriting the process. To some extent, all massages are designed to relieve muscle tension and promote healing. Those under the “oriental” banner usually focus on Eastern philosophies or theories about human energy, and may also rely on aspects of Eastern medicine, including the use of certain oils, plants, and earth elements for healing. Different practitioners necessarily have different individual philosophies and techniques, and there isn’t usually any uniform definition or set of rules for what this sort of massage is or should contain.

Research & general acceptance

In recent years, oriental massage has become widely accepted in the West. A growing number of Western practitioners are not only studying oriental massage, but also obtaining their training and certification in Shanghai and other centers of traditional oriental medical education. Many alternative treatment centers in the United States now offer oriental massage along with Western forms of bodywork. Still another indication of the wider acceptance of oriental forms of treatment is the emergence of hybrid massage therapies that combine oriental techniques with those derived from other Oriental traditions of massage or from Western practices.

All oriental massages involve treating the sensitive parts of the body by massaging them with oils.

Special considerations

There are some instances where massage isn’t recommended, including:
if skin rashes, cuts or infections are present
if fractures or broken bones are suspected.
