Massage Therapy

A Holistic Concept

The body is an Organic Whole.  All tissues and organs are closely related.  Abnormal functions of viscera can be reflected by the tissues and organs.

The natural environment affects the human body.  Human beings alter the natural environment.

The relationship between human beings and society influence each other.  i.e. social stability, development of economy and culture, social status.
