Knife Massage Ancient History

the Spring and Autumn Period

Knife Massage practice dates back more than 2500 years ago during the Spring and Autumn Periods. The Spring and Autumn period was a time of too many wars and great philosophers. Even after thousands of years, we are still reading and watching dramas stories from this time period. Philosophers such as Laozi, Confucius, Zhuangzi, Sunzi, and Mencius were just a few who devoted their lives to enlightening teachings. Their life stories are filled with the hope and aspiration to create peaceful nations of abundance. This was the academic atmosphere during that period. 

Harmonious Living

Perhaps it’s the turmoil that lead to the birth of great philosophy. Laozi’s teaching revolved around harmonious living between humans and nature. Confucius’ teaching was focused more on creating a harmonious society. And also Sunzi, who is known for the “Art of War”,  eventually became an advocate for no war. Interestingly, during this time period of endless war, these great teachers dedicated their lives to harmonious living. 

What does this have to do with the knife massage? Well, this was the period of time that the knife massage was first dated from. Monks would use mineral stones to “tap” the pressure points along the body as a way to help participants relief unease. These practitioners follow strict dietary rules and discipline as a way to achieve peaceful and harmonious state of being. Practitioners still follow a discipline today in order to offer this service.
