The method is based on the special sliding of joint surfaces, separation from each other, soft tissue technics.

ORIGIN OF MASSAGE
The origin of the word itself is not known exactly, but it can come equally from the Greak word massein (rub, knead), the French word massage, the Hebrew word mases, the Arabic word mass (hand stroking, pressing).
The massage is one of the oldest medical procedures, the first written records come from India.
Indians not only had extensive medical knowledge, but also supplemented their baths and sports with massages for both health and ritual purposes.
The massage treatment, which was also an integral part of their treatments, began on the face, continued on the torso, and ended with the limbs. Their medicines were divided into three groups: herbal (plants, fruits, flowers), animal (honey, wax, oils), and minerals (metals, limestone, precious stones). They also anointed the body with fragrant oils during their ritual ceremonies, and then took a bath in the waters of the Ganges River, which is still revered as sacred.
Middle-East and Egypt
Other ancient peoples of the East, the Assyrians, Babylonians, Medes, and Persians, used massage as a treatment, especially to heal their wounded soldiers.
In Egypt, it was used to heal both wounds and diseases, attributed magical power to it. The first evidence of the application of healing through the soles of the feet was a nearly 5,000-year-old mural found in the tomb of an Egyptian doctor, but in addition, numerous finds and data prove that massage was a common cure and the science of reflexology was known.
The role of massage can also be found in traditional Chinese medicine, its philosophical basis being Taoism. It harmonizes the balance between internal organs through acupuncture points. One of the oldest medical books dates back to the 3rd century B.C.: the Yellow Emperor's Book of Internal Medicine (Huang Ti Nei Ching), which still serves as a starting point for those involved in Eastern medicine. In addition to the Yin-Yang principle and the five elements doctrine, it provides an accurate description of anatomical concepts, but it also deals with breathing techniques and massage. The second part of the book describes the meridian system (the system of acupuncture channels). The massage was performed by medical priests and combined with active and passive exercise of the body (Tai Chi). It was mainly used for nervous system and circulatory problems. This is also the origin of the acupressure (finger pressure point massage) science, which is actually a simplified version of acupuncture. They placed great emphasis on maintaining good health, and regular exercise was part of their lives. We know from the records of Kung-fu-Ce that their masseurs have been trained for many years and the secret of this has been kept secret.
In ancient Greece, physical education, exercise, and health played a central role.
They took care of the nutrition, had a drinking cure, spent a lot of time at fresh air, bathed and went for massages. The Greeks used massage in body maintenance related to the training of their athletes, but also for healing purposes. Before and after competitions, it was mandatory to massage to refresh tired muscles.
Hippocrates (460-377 BC) learned the methods of massage from the greatest physician of antiquity, Herodicus (482-347 BC), and in his work De Officina Medici he writes about the physiological effects of massage. To chronic patients he advised to exercise, take spa and massage treatments. At that time, the movement was far ahead of the importance of other treatments. He was the first to know the main contraindication, according to which a febrile patient should not be massaged.
Greek culture was absorbed and applied by the Roman Empire. The situation was not different in the field of health, they inherited knowledge and they appreciated the experience gained by the Greeks.
The Greek-born physician Oscasius Asclepius (128-56 BC) was a massager of gladiators in the Roman court of Emperor Julianus, and in his encyclopedic work he summarized his observations, suggestions, and practices that are still valid today. Julius Caesar was massaged daily because of his neuralgia. Roman writer Pliny appreciated his masseuse so much and was so grateful to him that he asked the Roman emperor to grant him the greatest grace and give him Roman civil rights.
Galenus (131-201 AC), one of the greatest physicians of the Roman Empire, adopted the teachings of Hippocrates and gave indications and instructions on massage techniques in his work “Tripsis” (About health protection). He has already used and expanded the repertoire of massage techniques used in rheumatic patients. Nature itself heals, but the doctor must help in the recognition and administration of the natural healing effects.
Celsius, who was also one of the most known Roman physicians, used massage to treat rheumatic patients and injured soldiers. It was mostly done in the big cities, thermal baths (hot baths) and public baths of the empire.
Massage performed by slaves was common. Its time was in the morning and in the evening. In the morning to prepare the body for daily work, and in the evening to prepare it for rest.
In Europe, massage began to be used for healing purposes in the 1500s. In the 15th century, the French physician Nicolas Andry wrote about disease prevention and the functional role of the musculoskeletal system. Ambroise Pare based the massage on physiological and anatomical knowledge. In England, the British doctor Francis Fuller urged the massage to be performed by doctors. He testified that with the anatomical knowledge of doctors, the treatment has a distinctly healing effect, but without proper knowledge, it is only botched job. Massage was soon also taught at medical universities in England.
In Hungary, in the court of King Matthias (1443 - 1490), so-called carnivores performed methodical exercises similar to massage. During the Turkish occupation, the culture of bathing became widespread, and with it the practice of massage, as well. The procedures were carried out by the bath masters, and then, under German - Austrian influence, the methods of massage were raised to a scientific level in Hungary as well.
In the 17th century, the English W. Harvey discovered blood circulation, which gave a reasonable justification for the direction of massage, being the same as the direction of circulation. In England, the first private massaging institution was founded in the 1800s, founded by W. Beveridga, who himself was a massager. The institute worked with kneaders (rubbers) who rubbed the deposits in the skin with targeted rubbing grips. They were thought to be the cause of most diseases.
