The physician must be experienced in many things, but most assuredly in rubbing.
–Hippocrates, The “Father of Modern Medicine”

The object of massage is to disperse the effete matters found in the muscles and not expelled by exercise.
-Avicenna, Arab philosopher and physician wrote this in his Canon
