…for healthcare providers, by healthcare providers.
The Anatriptic Art, written by Walter Johnson, M.B., in 1866, outlays a history of the art termed by Hippocrates, tripsis by Galen, frictio by Celsus, manipulation by Beveridge, and medical rubbing in ordinary language, from the earliest times to the present day. The text is followed by an account of its virtues in the cure of disease and maintenance of health.
(an’ă-trip’tik) : A remedy to be applied by friction or rubbing.
At Anatriptic Arts, we subscribe to Mr. Johnson’s declaration for, in the United States, what-has-become-known-as Massage Therapy to be for the “maintenance of health.”
Our Mission is to reach as many healthcare providers with regular massage therapy to improve the quality of their work in the healthcare industry.
We are building a network of beneficiaries where, when receiving regular massage therapy sessions, health care providers may do “better” fulfilling their callings and service to their patients. This improved Quality of Life (QoL) for the healthcare professional translates into the improved QoL for their patients.
Anatriptic Arts is in the process of establishing & enacting the foundation of a system that will markedly improve patient QoL when the health care providers that provide them service are themselves physically well-maintained.
