The Egyptian massage is the oldest massage in history. It was offered only to pharaonic kings and queens such as Tutankhamun, Nefertiti, and Cleopatra. Egyptian massage focuses on stimulating the cells of the nervous system rather than on muscle cells alone. The therapist follows the nerve cells from the top of the head to the toes to stimulate the entire body. The technique involves a combination of soft tissue and muscle manipulations, warm kneading, and sweeping strokes. These basic movements lengthen and stretch inactive muscles while stimulating the blood and lymphatic circulation.
