An excerpt from this historical medical work reads, "A Careful study of the structure of the human body, its contours and conformations, together with the most agreeable and efficacious manner of applying massage to it, results in proving, either that the Creator made the body to be manipulated, or else that He put it into the heart of man to devise massage as a means of arousing under-action of nerve, muscle, and circulation Few there are who have taken any special interest in massage, but think they have improved it in some way peculiar to themselves, apparently unmindful of the words of the Father of Medicine who says that " Medicine hath of old both a principle and a discovered track, whereby in a long time many and fine discoveries have been discovered, and the rest will be discovered, if any one who is both competent and knows what hath been discovered, start from these data on the search. But whoever, rejecting these and despising all, shall undertake to search by a different track and in a different manner, and shall say that he hath discovered something, will be deceived himself and will deceive others." According to Hippocrates, then, not a few have deceived themselves and others in the use of massage from want of starting from previous data on the search. But so long as the patients are benefited, no harm has come of this."

Bodies intrigue us. They promise windows into the past that other archaeological finds cannot by bringing us literally face to face with history. Yet 'the body' is also highly contested. Archaeological bodies are studied through two contrasting perspectives that sit on different sides of a disciplinary divide. On one hand lie science-based osteoarchaeological approaches. On the other lie understandings derived from recent developments in social theory that increasingly view the body as a social construction. Through a close examination of disciplinary practice, Joanna Sofaer highlights the tensions and possibilities offered by one particular kind of archaeological body, the human skeleton, with particular regard to the study of gender and age. Using a range of examples, she argues for reassessment of the role of the skeletal body in archaeological practice, and develops a theoretical framework for bioarchaeology based on the materiality and historicity of human remains.
SHIATSU MASSAGE An Alternative Healing Therapy Today, the ancient healing techniques for healing are becoming more and more famous among so many people. Even in the medical world, doctors and other experts are using these as adjutant therapies to the more traditional methods of treatment and medication. One of these alternative healing methods is massage. And perhaps, the most popular style among over a dozen is Shiatsu. Shiatsu is a Japanese art of healing that is based on older Chinese methods that work with the body's Qi. It is believed that the body has the power to heal its own and, that by releasing the energy and letting it flow well through Shiatsu, the self-healing process will hasten. Although there are some medical professionals who have yet to see concrete results, some Shiatsu practitioners and individuals who have tried it declare that various diseases and health conditions can be treated with just this therapy.
