There have been many kinds of massage in the world, such as Swedish massage, traditional Thailand massage, Chinese tui na, Japanese Shiatsu, etc. Affected by increased average life span of human and desire for health, massage has been a popular beauty and health care for human body in modern society. As scientific research about effects of massage was needed, even its culture, theoretical backgrounds and methods have been founded and studied. However, in comparison of western massage, there are not much studies of Asian massage in spite of its long history and usage. Moreover, researches about overall culture, theory and technique of Asian massage are very scarce, although each of Asian massage like ayurveda, tui na were studied. In the present study, six kinds of Asian massage such as ayurveda of India, tui na of China, Thai massage, shiatsu of Japan, gua sha of China and jeobsi massage of Korea were reviewed from various perspectives like history, cultural background, theory and technique. And this overview study is expected to help the researches about Asian massage and its culture and suggests that more scientific studies of massage are necessary in the future.
