Korean Massage edit

Korean massage is a type of therapeutic massage that incorporates various techniques such as acupressure, deep tissue massage, and stretching. It focuses on increasing circulation, releasing tension in muscles and joints, and promoting overall relaxation and well-being. Korean massage may also incorporate the use of hot stones, herbal remedies, and other traditional Korean healing techniques. It is often performed on a mat on the floor and may involve the therapist using their feet, knees, and elbows in addition to their hands. Overall, Korean massage can be a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experience for both the body and mind. Hayyan767 (talk) 13:59, 27 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The link is to an ad for a particular massage service, and hardly a reliable source. --Macrakis (talk) 21:05, 27 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question regarding "specific area of massage" subsection. edit

There are six examples provided. All six are focused on the genitals and/or anus. Surely there exists specific focal massages that don't exclusively involve the funniest bits of the human anatomy. Anyone else feel like getting the balls rolling? 2607:FEA8:C2A0:87E0:498A:ABB4:A835:203E (talk) 22:55, 29 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

'History' section formatting & content edit

The format of the history section stands out as non-Wikipedia-like to me; it should either be turned into a timeline or rewritten as prose. There are also some weird choices for events to highlight -- why is the birth of Pehr Henrik Ling mentioned? Why is there a tangent about the translation of Galen's manuscripts and Avicenna (described beyond their relationship to massage therapy)? The entire "Modern times" subsection does not describe any modern history of massage, instead describing its contemporary use (as opposed to its development). In addition, many of the citations are incorrect, not actually supporting the associated claims. ARoseThorn (talk) 03:02, 23 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
